The subtly smoky notes of mezcal combine brilliantly with the aromatic bitter sweetness of gentian liqueur in this fabulously complex aperitif cocktail.
Adapted from a drink created in 2015 by Julio Xoxocotla at Ward III, New York City, USA. Julio’s original recipe omits the sugar syrup and calls for ¾ oz Dolin Blanc for the dry vermouth.
