“We’re not looking for a drink that’s going from not-salty to salty, but one that starts out as overly bitter, then balances out over time through the introduction of saline,” said Will Thompson of Straight Law in Brookline, Mass. Here the aggressive bitterness is “sanded off and quieted down,” allowing the vegetal components of the gentian liqueur to assert themselves. Pictured above on left.
