Just being so involved in the drinkstagram we get to read and learn so much from others. We’ve read much about using salt in cocktails but haven’t actually used it much yet. We have used salt on rims, even sometimes made flavored salted rims. But salt being part of the syrup sounds great to us and we would love to try it.
That’s why we repost this amazing shot from @pittsburghcocktailclub.
Quote; “Crazy to think the first day of Summer is this Friday. But with that, need to work on a strong shift in cocktail flavors. For this, I grabbed a drink template from @cocktailcollaborative and twisted it a bit. The Salted Watermelon Syrup turned out incredible. And lengthening it a bit with club soda did the trick for the steamy Summer days in their way. A beautiful mix between a Mojito and Margarita. Cheers!
