Spice seems to be the rage these days, so when I was out I asked about Besamim Liqueur. I kept seeing it at bars and stores yet had never tasted it before. Besamim Liqueur is an aromatic spice liqueur. Very vibrant in the aroma, where you think the spice would take over, and as you taste it you realize it is perfectly balanced. After a few drinks, I said this would be great with coffee, and we mixed it over ice with some coffee and a splash of cream that made a great late night cocktail. The fact is I could drink Besamim on it’s own yet as variety is the spice of life, more my cocktails will be created.
Looking at the website I learned Besamim Liqueur is a all natural handcrafted spirit, made from pure cane sugar spirits, hand ground spices, and mountain spring water, it’s 37% alc/vol. They never use industrial alcohol, corn syrup or any artificial sweetners or additives. On the Besamim website I did find a Cocktail Recipe page for some great drink ideas. It has won many Gold Medals, from SIP Awards, Craft Competition, Tastings… I purchased it at Mission Wine & Spirits liquor store that will ship it right to your house.
What wax do you use? “Sexwax of coarse”. I used Sexwax as a little kid (grom), now it’s “retro”, it works/does it’s job, and it’s the “go to” choice for pros/experienced surfers. Another plus, they started using an Eco box now packaging is now recyclable. Recyclable package is made of 100% recycled fibers with environmentally friendly, low V.O.C. inks. This new package is easy to open and can be reused to keep your partially used wax clean in its original package. I love that they put on the side “Please don’t litter”.
The Sexwax I am featuring is the;
3X (XXX) Rated Soft (1X softest stickiest – 6X hardest least sticky)
COOL TO MID WARM
58°F to 74°F
14°C to 23°C
Made in the U.S.A.
Non-Toxic – You can chew it! Not a food item, yet all ingredients are designated as food additives by the FDA.
It is a softer wax some of the benefits are, stickier and easier to apply, it will move or rub away in spots where you put a lot of pressure and use. I am happy with the stickiness and stability underfoot.
Sexwax Green Label is my go to wax, as they say it is, “The Best For Your Stick”.
