How does mezcal fare in a martini? I have been playing with a few mezcal recipes. It is probably one of the most versatile spirits I have ever played with. With that martini thought, this drink morphed into something super delicious.
1.5 oz mezcal
0.75 oz Dolin blanc
0.25 oz Cream de Violette
3 drops green chartreuse elixir
3 dashes of grapefruit bitters
We tend to think the smokiness as the dominant flavor of mezcal. It has many different styles and flavor profile. For this one, I used 100 proof espadin that is directly from clay pot still. Its bright notes go well with the Violette.
Also, Mezcal Week @mezcalweek is upcoming from Sept 8 - Sept 15th. Be sure to check out a venue nearby that supports it, and looking forward to seeing your creation!
