Review:

Mezcal provides the firepower, tamed by sweet vermouth and rich herbal liqueur. A great late-night sipper.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2019 by Erick Castro at Polite Provisions, San Diego, USA. Erick's original recipe calls for a "grasshopper salt rim" made by blending ½ cup sea salt and 2 spoons dehydrated grasshoppers.
