A negroni cocktail prepared with smoky Mezcal
July 28th, 2018
I love amaro cocktails—they feel sophisticated, accomplished. A taste that hints of another era, one with pungent herbal drinks, irregular cobblestone streets, and streamy urban fall evenings. Negronis are the deserving darling of amaro cocktails, with a bitter, biting, and dusky personality. Often, I use mezcal in place of gin for its smoky notes, and clip a branch off of my misplaced fire escape citrus tree as a garnish.

Joven Mezcal is an un-aged, full-bodied, and lightly smokey tequila. Eucalyptus and mineral aromas compliment hints of green apple, fresh citrus, and red chiltepe.
