Aloe'n & Cynical

A bright and complex equal parts cocktail made from aloe, artichoke, and agave.
1 oz Mezcal, Del Maguey Vida
1 oz Cynar
1 oz Aloe Liqueur, Chareau
Stir with cracked ice, strain into a chilled coupe.
The aloe hits first and is fruity and herbal, followed by the smoke and body of the mezcal. I thought it was just pretty okay up until the point that the bittersweet complexity of the Cynar hit the back and sides of my tongue. Then, holy shit... it just all melded in a way that had me craving another sip, and then another... and then another cocktail.
Isolation inspired cocktail during the Coronavirus quarantine of 2020.

  • Good! But I like my mistake (Clearly Aloe'n) much better. — ☆☆☆
  • Starts bright, fruity, and herbal. Melts into smoke. Finishes bittersweet and complex, inviting a subsequent sip. Easy to make; hard to stop sipping. — ☆☆☆☆☆
