One might think that the perfect drink for a physical oceanographer might be the Tidal Wave, Sea Breeze or even the Deep Sea Martini. But it is not the name that makes the perfect drink, it is the ingredients. And in this case those ingredients come from a rather fantastic distillery in Seattle, Sound Spirits Distillery.
I mean, even their front entrance is awesome.
But onto their product, Ebb+Flow Gin. This alcohol just knows me. How could I have ever analyzed internal wave data properly without it? Raise a glass and do the proper toast to the study of water in the ocean with this Physical Oceanographer’s favorite libation, the Ebb+Flow Gin and Tonic.
Ebb+Flow Gin and Tonic
5 oz tonic water
1 lime wedge
Pour the gin and the tonic water into a highball glass almost filled with ice cubes. Stir well. Garnish with the lime wedge and analysis of tidal data.
