Mezcal Cocktail: A Love Supreme

Mezcal Cocktail

The dark, smoky notes of mezcal sing when paired with a bittersweet aperitivo liqueur and tart cassis. For the bitter element, Olamaie beverage director Erin Ashford uses Don Ciccio & Figli Luna Aperitivo but says Campari or Aperol will also work well.

2 oz. mezcal
½ oz. crème de cassis (Ashford uses Giffard Cassis Noir de Bourgogne)
¼ oz. red bitter aperitivo
½ oz. rich turbinado syrup (2:1)
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
2 dashes Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Glass: rocks

Prepare a glass by rimming with smoked Himalayan sea salt (or salt of your choice). In a shaker, combine all the ingredients with ice and shake to chill. Strain over fresh ice into the prepared glass.
