Mezcal Cocktail

Aren't the holidays just the greatest?  You get to sleep in, spend time with your family, eat festive food and drink on weekdays...this time of year is simply heaven.  I am fortunate enough to have one of my closest friends Liz as a neighbor and this year we have really been making the most of our close proximity.

Liz recently visited Oaxaca and brought back a ton of Mezcal so I was inspired to create a cocktail for New Years Eve.  This is a really simple drink to make and is a great introduction to Mezcal.

Recipe

.75 oz Agave Syrup

.75 oz fresh lime juice

.25 oz Aperol

 

Process

Add all ingredients to shaker and shake with ice until cold.
