Sea Mist Sour Premixed Ready To Drink Cocktail In A Bottle
A taste of the sea inspired by the Deal coastline in Kent.
This cocktail is inspired by the Deal seaside where I live.
Along it's shores grows wild fennel, planted by the Romans when they first invaded on the beaches of Walmer which I have responsibly foraged and used in the drink. I have taken a wonderful single Estate tequila Ocho and infused it with organic Nori seaweed which gives the drink an umami backdrop and also its marine hue. A sea salted fennel syrup, citrus and yuzu bitters complete the drink.
You may notice the illustration of the iconic Deal Pier on the label. This was illustrated by local prominent artist Neil 'Ned' Kelly. This pen drawing was done in one complete movement without lifting the pen off the page. He's made some wonderful prints of the aforementioned drawing which can be purchased from his Don't Walk Walk Gallery along with a wide range of art from other local and national artists www.dontwalkwalkgallery.com
To serve a Sea Mist Sour, pour up to 50ml into an ice filled glass, top with chilled soda or Mediterranean tonic, stir, and garnish with a slice of lemon and transport yourself to the sea!
265 ABV | 500ml | Makes 10 drinks
Instantly one of my favourite cocktails!
I am a bit of a tequila fanatic myself and this was the perfect drink throughout the summer. Refreshing with Mediterranean tonic, easy drinking and it truly embodies the flavours of tequila and the coastline. Don't hesitate to try it if you like your tequila too! #obsessed!
