Created in February 2014 by yours truly (Simon Difford) after misreading the recipe for a Sangre Dulce by Regina Butler at Blackbird Bar in San Francisco. I used Valet Falernum in place of Fernet Vallet but the resulting drink tasted good.

Mezcal is distilled from agave plants which are categorised ‘Succulents’ - plants which are thickened and fleshy, allowing them to retain water in arid climates - hence this cocktail's name.
