Seaside

Team Lyan | London

An all-time favorite and one of the White Lyan’s classics, the Seaside is essentially a more savory take on the Paloma. Calling on yuzu syrup, sweetened with agave and glucose, the drink is bittered with lemon juice and lengthened with both soda and housemade “seaweed water.”

Ingredients

Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila, preferably Tapatio Blanco
  • 1 ounce yuzu syrup (see Editor's Note)
  • 1 ounce seaweed water (see Editor's Note)
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 3 dashes orange bitters
  • soda water, to top

Directions
  1. Combine all ingredients, except the soda water, in a highball glass over ice.
  2. Top with soda water.
Editor's Note

Yuzu Syrup:
3 ounces pure glucose powder
3 ounces agave syrup
3 ounces yuzu juice
3 ounces water

Blend all ingredients with a hand blender until dissolved.

Seaweed Water:
1/2 ounce dried seaweed
1 3/4 cups water, at room temperature

Add the seaweed to the water and allow it to rehydrate until it's tripled in size. Strain, reserving the water. (Seaweed can be discarded or saved for another use.)
