From other users
  • 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.

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 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...
