The perfect drink for the Physical Oceanographer

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.

You had me at tentacle.

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.

Even the bottle is wavy!

Ebb+Flow Gin and Tonic

2 oz Ebb +Flow gin
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.

Kim is a Senior Oceanographer at Sea-Bird Scientific. She received her Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from the University of Washington in 2010. Her goal in life is to throw expensive s**t in the ocean. When not at sea, she has used observations from moored, satellite and land-based instruments to understand the pathways that wind and tidal energy take from large (internal tides) to small scales (turbulence). Her current mission is to make your oceanographic data be the best data it can be.
