Food & Drink
October 6, 2017
I’ve never really been in LOVE with mezcal. Tequila yes. Mezcal not convinced. Then during one of our most recent “moms night out” I was served the most delicious, well balance mezcal drink. I immediately asked the bartender for his secrets. What is this? What do you call it ? How do I make it? He gave me very little. He quickly blurted out the 5 ingredients and left me just a few words of wisdom, “It’s all in the ratios. Good luck.” Kinda of a jerk move, but that didn’t dissuade me. The next night I successfully recreated what I now call Mezcal Tinto. Have a try…you won’t regret it.
- 2.5 oz of premium mezcal
- fresh squeezed juice from 1 small lime
- fresh squeezed juice from 1/2 a large lemon
- 1.5 tbsp of simple syrup
- approximately 1/4 cup of cabernet
Shake ingredients 1-4 in a shaker filled with ice. Shake fast for about 1 minute until the ice starts to melt and the drink becomes frothy. Place a large square ice cube into an old fashioned glass. Pour the contents of the shaker over the ice cube. Top the drink with cabernet. SALUTE!
