  • Spicy and complex but a little too sweet. I thought it was improved with a bit more lime.
  • Nice use of Gran Classico! I subbed 1/3 oz. Ancho Reyes for shrub cuz I didn't have any, but I'm guessing the shrub would balance the sweet better. I also used 3/4 oz. Mezcal to make it smokier.
  • Killer
  • Nice smoky. Not too hot with even 16 drops of Habanero shrub.
