Shipwreck Sour

If you have never tried a squid ink cocktail. And chances are you haven't, then you're missing out on a drinking experience. Squid ink is salty savoury and VERY fishy. Adding a little bit is a interesting way to create a pitch black drink, and add a salty touch to your cocktail without the need of adding actual salt. it also adds a silky texture. Black cocktails have been trendy of recent times, normally done with the addition of activated charcoal. Which works great, and is something I myself will use from time to time. but it adds nothing in terms of flavour to a cocktail. Squid ink you can get easily online, or even from IKEA. I suggest buying some and getting experimental. Just remember, with squid ink, a little goes a long way. Its very easy to over do it and dominate your drink with a fishy taste. 1 spoon is should be the max you're adding. Here's the recipe I came up with using squid ink. try it out and use it as inspiration for your own creation. I would also love to hear what you come up with using squid ink
