Review:

Bittersweet and sweet 'n' sour with smoky mezcal, zesty grapefruit and faint floral elderflower, particularly on the long smoky finish.

History:

A riff on Jim Meehan's usually gin-based Old Friend created in October 2020 by yours truly as a result of a comment left by a Discerning Drinker on our Old Friend page saying, "Swapped out gin for mezcal and would highly recommend for the more adventurous."
