Today we’ve got another cocktail from my friends at Red Pepper Taqueria in Atlanta. I had to choose a cocktail that had a bit of heat and true to their name. I’ve been trying mezcals over the past few years, with Fidencio and Ilegal being among my favorite brands. This cocktail uses mezcal from Sombra.
Some mezcals can hit you over the head with smoke but I find La Sombra to be quite balanced and perfect for cocktails such as this one. It’s also extremely simple to make with only four ingredients.
If you give it a try, let me know what you think!
