  • Robin like it only without the Mezcal — ☆☆☆☆
  • Hogo of the S&C held in check--dominating flavor is the bitter raisiny PeM. Fans of same will like this sophisticated drink. — ☆☆☆☆

Made this this evening

Made this this evening without the rinse (I'm lacking Mezcal at the moment, sadly). Wow. I think I may have a new favorite way to drink Smith and Cross.

A great idea, but my bottle

A great idea, but my bottle of Lagavulin's at a friend's place. I'll give that a try next time if I'm still Mezcal-less.

This is wrong one at least

This is wrong one at least two levels. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Lagavulin should be either in your cabinet or in your glass.

I just confirmed with Erik

I just confirmed with Erik that this one should be Ashtray Heart and not Ash Tray Heart.

I liked the lingering

I liked the lingering bitterness from the punt e mes. Smith n cross funk is mellowed out by 2 oz of vermouth. Tasty session cocktail. Kj found it a bit cloying...
