Hazardous ingredients

Pasteurised egg white is potentially hazardous to those with allergy or intolerance.

Review:

Two massively flavoursome spirits and two very characterful liqueurs combine harmoniously in this delicious sour.

Variant:

Served on-the-rocks in a clay or terracotta mug.

History:

The origin of this cocktail is unknown but as far as I know, it has no connection with the similarly named mezcal brand spelt with just the one 'l'. Its popularity is such that it appears as a "New era drink" on the 2020 IBA Official Cocktail List (spelt with a double 'l').

Alcohol content:

  • 1.5 standard drinks
  • 19.76% alc./vol. (39.52° proof)
  • 21.3 grams of pure alcohol
