“More times than not, sweeter drinks can benefit from small additions of salt, to help balance and bring out the flavors in a more profound way,” says Morgan Weber, co-owner/beverage director of Eight Row Flint in Houston. He adds two dashes of soy sauce to this mule variation, which he calls “deceptively simple” and “extremely satisfying.” One soy sauce packet will make about three cocktails.
