Kish and I continued our occasional sampling of new cocktails Friday night during a visit to Curio. This particular concoction is called a Salt and Pine. I ordered it because the name made was so intriguing, and made it sound like the drink must taste the sweaty floor on a basketball court (not that I know what that would taste like, of course.)
Believe it or not, this cocktail was really very good. Made with orange blossom water, vermouth, gin, lemon juice, lime juice, and salted honey syrup, finished with a lemon peel, and served in an icy, chilled glass, it had a light taste that was not too sweet. Very refreshing, indeed!
I’m not really a spirits drinker, but I’ve been enjoying our periodic forays into the world of artisanal cocktails. It’s fun to try something new.
