The Secret Ingredient for Elevated Cocktails: Smoked Salt

Cocktails are a great way to experiment with different flavours and ingredients, and one ingredient that can add an interesting twist to your favourite drinks is smoked salt. Smoked salt is a type of gourmet salt that is infused with smoky flavour, usually through a process of slow smoking over wood chips. This unique ingredient can add depth and complexity to your cocktails, and can be used in a variety of ways, from rimming glasses to incorporating into the drink itself. In this post, we'll share three cocktail ideas that use smoked salt, perfect for anyone looking to add a touch of smoky flavour to their happy hour.


Below 3 cocktail recipes using smoked salt:

  1. Smoky Margarita: Rim a glass with smoked salt, then mix 2 oz. tequila, 1 oz. lime juice, and 1 oz. smoked agave nectar in a shaker with ice. Shake until chilled, then strain into the glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy the smoky, savory flavour.

  2. Mezcal Sour: Combine 2 oz. mezcal, 1 oz. lemon juice, and 1 oz. simple syrup in a shaker with ice. Shake until chilled, then strain into a glass rimmed with smoked salt. Top with a dash of bitters and garnish with a lemon twist for a smoky, sour drink.

  3. Smoky Bloody Mary: Combine 2 oz. vodka, 4 oz. tomato juice, 1 oz. lemon juice, 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp. horseradish, and a pinch of smoked salt in a shaker with ice.
