Peat’s Dragon, A Mezcal and Scotch Cocktail

A double dose of smoke packs a big punch of flavor. 

A double dose of smoke inspired the name of this mezcal and scotch cocktail. “I’ve never not loved a smoky cocktail, and this one certainly hits your nose before it reaches your palate,” says Bon Vivants owner Kyle Jones. “The name came from one of my favorite movies from childhood, Pete’s Dragon. It’s all I could think of when I first sipped it.”
