  • Try for Thanksgiving
  • Used Laird's 80, but Mezcal movement Siete Misterioso, 100, so maybe the ABV comes close. I think the drink is slightly imprecise, but I love the assemblage of ingredients. — ☆☆☆☆
  • The sum of all these ingredients fell flat. A lot of conflicting notes that didn’t add up. — ☆☆

"Cocchi" is their sweet

"Cocchi" is their sweet vermouth -- not the Americano or other. I created this at Russell House Tavern where it appeared on a short menu for a Del Maguey-sponsored Day of the Dead event in 2013. I later made it at other places that had a 3 oz build instead of 4 oz as .75 oz each mezcal and apple brandy and .5 oz each sweet vermouth, Benedctine, and lime.
