This cocktail evokes campfire season. The mezcal kicks things off with cedar and smoke notes, leaving lingering autumnal flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg. Vanilla extract bridges these spices with the rich, roasted flavors of Mr. Black's Arabica coffee beans. Meanwhile, ancho chile powder brings a little fire with some deep, smoky heat.
