Brackish is a term used to describe water that has somewhat of a salty taste and is therefore unpalatable. Next time you feel like being a bottled water snob tell your friends you don’t like that specific brand because it’s brackish.

Although brackish water may be unsuitable for drinking, it makes for a perfectly moist piece of meat when used as a brine. Brackish is also used to describe salty flavor while tasting beer and wine. That is definitely our favorite application of the word.
