Mezcalita Cocktail

Description:

The Mezcalita cocktail made by Petar Marinov, bartender at the Monkey Beach Club Tenerife at the Canary Islands (Spain). Mezcal is becoming a most required ingredient for the recreation of classic cocktails, replacing obvious spirits like rum or vodka. This trend, due to the recent discovery of mescal, is here to stay.

Ingredients:

4cl alipús mezcal*
2cl orange flavoured cognac
4cl freshly squeezed lime juice
1 cl sugar syrup
1 dash of blue curaçao
Fine salt

*Petar’s suggestion: Mezcal Alipús San Baltazar

Preparation:

Moisten the rim of the glass with lime juice and, holding the glass upside down, dip the rim into fine salt. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake and strain into the glass. Add a dash of blue curaçao before serving. For a complete mexican experience, serve the “mezcalita” with some nachos and guacamole!
