Inspired by common Mexican spices and flavors, I wanted to create a cocktail unlike any other. To complement Mr. Black, I used mezcal, chile liqueur, and mole bitters to bring smoke, heat, and sweet. To cut through the bitter and balance the drink, I added lime juice and cinnamon syrup which rounded out the body of the drink. Finally, a pinch of salt brings out the full explosion of flavor.
Cheers and enjoy!
