Oaxacan Bijou

mezcal version of the gin-based classic
1 12 oz Mezcal, Del Maguey Vida
1 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1 oz Sweet vermouth, Carpano Antica Formula
2 ds Orange bitters, Angostura orange
1 twst Lemon peel
Stir, strain, up. Garnish with lemon twist
Ingredient amounts increased to typical US standard pours. May be a tad sweet for some, so consider dropping the Yellow Chartreuse to .75 oz (matching the Imbibe ratios for the classic gin Bijou). Also interesting with .75 oz Green Chartreuse, though I prefer the Yellow.
