Review:

Smoky, tangy and complex with layers of flavour, although happily mezcal dominates.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2016 by Stephen Wicker at the Raleigh Bar, Miami Beach, USA. Stephen's original recipe calls for twice as much ginger syrup, but the ginger syrup he uses is housemade with a 1:1 concentration.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.1 standard drinks
  • 13.43% alc./vol. (26.86° proof)
  • 15.1 grams of pure alcohol
