Mor Koral

Founder of Salt & Spirit, Israel.

Hospitality has been Mor Koral's natural environment for half of her life. Mor started her career in Israel's cocktail bar 223, which she ran for several years. In 2017 she joined the international team of the Mulberry project and worked as a senior bartender in their flagship bar in Tulum, Mexico. After a year, she continued in Mulberry's new locations, helping establish new venues in Reykjavik, Iceland, and Nairobi, Kenia.

In 2019, Mor moved to Northern Italy to pursue a master's degree in gastronomy at Slow Food's University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo, Piedmont. Food education motivated Mor to keep delving into the global food and drink culture with deep knowledge and a renewed purpose for her craft.

Moving back to Israel in 2020, just before the pandemic, during lockdown she started her own business of cocktail delivery and online cocktail workshops. Today, Mor continues to run her own brand of cocktail workshops and boutique private events, Salt & Spirit. With a vision to reach as many people as possible and to share a great passion for the craft of cocktail making, Mor gets motivated and inspired by teaching people about great ingredients and how to drink better at home and out.

Hometown Hero Challenge cocktail: Corner Stone

Glass: Coupe
Garnish: Grated yoghurt stone
Method: In a shaker, muddle 5 rocket leaves, add Patrón Silver, white grapefruit juice, and the citrus vinaigrette. Add ice cubes, shake and fine strain.
45 ml Patrón Silver tequila
5 fresh Rocket leaves
30 ml White grapefruit juice
30 ml Citrus vinaigrette*
Inspiration: As a bartender and a food person, Mor has always considered mixology and gastronomy to be strongly connected and affected by local culture, climate, politics, etc. Striving to craft the perfect cocktail for the Patrón Perfectionists, she highlighted some traditional ingredients of the local native communities throughout history. Palestinians still practice traditional food rituals based on local staple produce such as olive oil, goat milk, citrus, and plenty of foraged herbs. In Mor's cocktail, the combination of the rocket, olive oil, and citrus enhances the natural herbal-peppery notes of Patrón silver. The emulsion of the ingredients into a vinaigrette gives a rich, silky texture, like the spirit itself. "Yogurt stone", sometimes referred to as "the parmesan cheese of the Middle East" is the umami agent - grated on the glass.

*Citrus vinaigrette
In a blender, blend olive oil, lemon juice, orange peel, honey, salt and pepper until it becomes an emulsion. Freeze a coupe glass and then coat it with a grated yoghurt stone for garnish.
