This equal-parts drink is not a proper cocktail but a shot, meant to be drunk in one go. If there are any booze bullies that can back mezcal into a corner, it’s the tag team of green and yellow Chartreuse. They dominate here, creating a liquid riot of herbs in a glass, with a background smokiness the only hint that the mezcal’s still hiding in there. The drink is on tap at the Grain and Grape Exchange in Jacksonville, Fla.
