1 oz Cynar
1 oz Aloe vera liqueur, Chareau
Instructions

Stir with cracked ice, strain into a chilled coupe.

Notes

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.

History

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. — ★★★★★
