Review:

There's something about the more assertive style of mezcal that suits this cocktail better than its original tequila-based incarnation.

History:

A riff on Naren Young's 2013 tequila-based High Noon cocktail. When I say "riff" the only change is swapping tequila for mezcal. This mezcal-based version was popular and is identified with New York City's Empellón Cocina Mexican-restaurant before its closure in 2017.
