The smoky spice of tequila and mezcal have a special affinity for pineapple; in this drink, the richness and smoke are further accented by the ginger and clove flavors of falernum.
1 3/4 oz. reposado tequila
1/3 oz. mezcal
1 oz. fresh lime juice
3/4 oz. pineapple syrup (use your favorite brand, or get a DIY recipe here)
1 tsp. falernum, for rinse
Tools: shaker, strainer
Garnish: thin slice of lime peel
Combine all ingredients except falernum in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake well until chilled, about 10 seconds; strain into chilled cocktail glass that’s been rinsed with falernum. Garnish.
