Our Comment:

This pale pink cocktail looks delicate and indeed is delicately balanced with a wisp of mezcal smoke. Even if you forgo the infusion and use unflavoured blanco tequila it's still a great drink.


Adapted from a recipe created by Alex Kratena, London, England. Alex's original recipe calls for Del Maguey Chichicapa mezcal.
