Spirits and Salt of Sargasso made in the Western Ocean covered with that Vegetable; excellent against the Scurvy.





Goße Mengen frei im Wasser schwebender Braunalgen, die Sargassum-"Wälder", hat Kolumbus gesichtet.
Wie "Spirits and Salt" daraus gewonnen werden und wie dieses Saragassum-Gemüse gegen Skorbut helfen soll, bleibt Sir Thomas Browne's Geheimnis.

Oder hat Washington Post es gelöst:
Sargasso:
• 2 oz aged rhum agricole (Rhum J.M Elevé sous Bois)
• 3/4 oz sweet sherry (Lustau Dry Oloroso + dash simple syrup)
• 1/2 oz Aperol
• 2 dashes Angostura bitters
Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with an orange peel.
The Sargasso is good. The grassy flavors of rhum agricole add interest much like tequila does in similar tequila-Campari pairings, but the sugary backbone of the rhum ties in much better to the sherry. The light, mildly bitter Aperol fades in with orange peel as the burnt sugar is dying out and finishes with a bitter, dry note that does not cloy. Just a really enjoyable cocktail.
