- 1 oz caramelized honey syrup
- ¾ oz lime juice
- 2 oz Reposado tequila (100% agave preferred)
- 3 dashes of Birch Smoked Salt saline solution
- Saltverk Birch Smoked Salt
- 3 1/2 tsp. Saltverk Birch Smoked Salt
- 1/3 cup water
Make a 20% saline solution by dissolving the salt in the water, stirring until dissolved. Put the solution in a dropper bottle for ease of use.
For the caramelized honey syrup, add 500 g of honey into a pot and bring to a boil. Once it hits boiling, immediately turn heat as low as you can while maintaining a simmer. Stir the mixture frequently to avoid burning on the bottom (you want caramelization, but not burning). This can take 10-15 minutes. The aroma of the honey should become less floral and more malty and chocolatey. Once finished, put it to the side and bring 200ml of water to a boil. Then, very carefully, combine the two, stirring well to incorporate. Syrup will last one month refrigerated.
Rim a glass to your liking with Saltverk Birch Smoked Salt. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until well chilled and strain into your pre-rimmed glass. Skál!
