Morricone_CREDIT Kate N. G. SommersThis Ennio Morricone-inspired drink makes music all its own with a mix of tequila, Campari and infused mezcal (think: Negroni riff).

1 1/2 oz. añejo tequila
1 1/2 oz. Campari
1 dash orange bitters
1 tsp. cacao nib mezcal (see below)
Large pieces of ice
Tools: barspoon
Glass: rocks

Place a large piece of ice in a rocks glass, add ingredients one by one, stir and serve.

Cacao nib mezcal: Combine 1 liter of smoky mezcal with 8 oz. of ground cacao nibs in a large  jar. Let rest for 24 hours, then strain through a coffee filter and funnel into a clean glass bottle.
