A Burnt Offering to Tangaroa

A riff on my Krakatoa, August 25th, 1883 for the Hale Pele bar regular contest
Shake and pour unstrained into a double rocks glass.
To make salted caramel syrup, in a large saucepan, take 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook until a dark caramel forms - wisps of smoke should be evident. Carefully add 1/2 cup water to the caramel and once the bubbles subside, swirl to dissolve the sugar. Let cool and strain into a squeeze bottle.
