Our comment:

Looking over the liqueur and syrup dominated recipe, this mezcal-based cocktail would appear to be sweet. However, the spec is deceiving, and the finished drink is surprisingly balanced, harnessing some big flavours and presenting them harmoniously.

History:

Created in 2017 by Sam Fraser at The Rockinghorse, Chichester, England. "While travelling, I read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. A book I would recommend to anyone. I would not be the first person to say that it changed my life. However, I am a bartender, and when something influences me like that, it also influences the drinks I make. I was imagining faraway lands full of treasure, alchemists, crystal merchants and sandstorms. I wanted to create something exotic in every sense: in origin, taste, aroma, and appearance.
