Drinking with Seaweed- An Umami Adventure
If you are looking to add a bit of fun and adventure into your next happy hour- try seaweed. Seaweed is gaining popularity in all sorts of dishes mainly for it's high nutritional content and earthy umami flavor but seaweed can also be found in alcohol.
I heard about Marshall Wharf's seaweed beer a few years ago and got very excited- the idea of seaweed and beer! Honestly, I'm not a big beer drink but their Sea Belt Scotch Ale is yummy. It's a dark beer with some lovely ocean notes.
Whiskey is another way to try seaweed. Celp from Scotland has a piece of seaweed floating in the bottle. It's the Scottish version of a good tequila.
And how about changing your Bloody Mary to an Ocean Mary by adding a rim of seaweed flakes around the glass. Seaweed salt is easy to make- mix equal parts of your favorite seaweed flakes with a nice sea salt. For a spicy, slightly celery mix add a bit of Old Bay Seasoning.
