Franky Marshall of the Brooklyn cocktail bar Le Boudoir boldly created a cocktail using three tricky spirits that might not seem to mix well: mezcal, Scotch whisky and banana liqueur. Softened and slightly sweetened by honey syrup, they harmonize into a strong, smoky, seductive drink that might make you lose your head (in the best possible way).
- 1oz. mezcal
- ¾oz. blended Scotch
- ¼oz. banana liqueur
- ¼oz. honey syrup (equal parts honey and water)
- Lemon peel
Step 1Add all liquid ingredients to mixing glass. Stir with ice. Strain into snifter over two ice cubes. Express lemon essence over drink, then discard peel.
