Stefan erntet Salz für den Limoncello Spritz

Limoncello Cocktail Recipe - Salt and Lemons

In summer the sea calms down in Mallorca. On the rocky coasts, the seawater that has collected in the so-called "cocós" during the cold season evaporates. What remains is the finest Flor de Sal. The best time to harvest the salt is when the rock holes have not yet dried out completely. You can easily harvest the salt crust with a spoon. The fluffy flakes melt in the mouth, are wonderfully aromatic and not at all salty.

After the salt harvest, it's time for a summer cocktail on the terrace. Salt sharpens flavors and makes sweets even sweeter. The interplay between sweetness, acidity and salt is irresistible.

Here is the recipe for 4 people:

  • Juice from two lemons
  • a pinch of salt
  • 20 cl Single Tree Limoncello
  • Soda or sparkling wine a gusto for spraying

We mix our Single Tree Limoncello with the lemon juice and a pinch of salt over lots of ice in a large mason jar. The glasses get a rim of freshly harvested salt. Finally, a splash of sparkling water (sparkling wine is also great) and the Sal y Limones cocktail is ready. Cheers!

About the Single Tree Limoncello:

We just bottled the new 2022 batch. This year it might be a bit more aromatic than the 21. The lemons are again from our friends Borja and Alicia. Their limonero is more than 100 years old and stands on a terrace in Son Vida with incredible views of the sea. Our limoncello production is never very large as all the lemons come from just this one tree. It tastes best ice cold, so just keep the bottle in the freezer.
