Acre Bird

A vibrant mezcal cocktail.

The sweetness of honey and passion fruit matches the brightness of mezcal and Aperol in this cocktail inspired by the Jungle Bird.


  • 1 oz. mezcal (Guerrero uses Acre Mezcal)
  • 1 oz. Aperol
  • 1/2 oz. honey-passion fruit syrup
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
  • Tools:shaker, strainer
  • Glass:collins or highball


Combine all of the ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake to chill. Strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice and garnish.

Honey-Passion Fruit Syrup: Start by making a honey syrup by combining 1 cup of water with 2 cups of honey. Simmer on medium heat until the honey dissolves. Remove from heat and let chill. Add just over 1/2 of a cup (150 mL) of passion fruit purée to the mix and stir to combine. Keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
