Cardamom & Cherry Mezcal Sazerac
1 1/2 oz. good Mezcal, we suggest a good base one like Vida
1/2 oz. Absinthe
5 shakes DRAM Black Bitters
1/4 oz. tart black cherry juice to get the classic red color and add a bit of tart acid
flamed orange peel
“Wash” the glass you intend to serve the drink in with absinthe by swirling it around until all sides are coated. The faint of heart will dump the remaining fluid in the glass, we like to leave it for an extra punch of boozy heat. In a separate mixing glass stir the mezcal, pine syrup, bitters and cherry juice with ice. Strain the mixture into the absinthe washed glass and add some fancy ice. Garnish with a flamed orange peel. A simple google search can teach you how to flame an orange peel- we believe in you.
