  • Made with reposado. Very tasty. The mezcal is very subtle. Nice rich cherry flavor. Makes a big drink. — ★★★★

Fantastic drink. On a typographical note, the creator's name is spelled "Robitschek" I believe

I don't have any Anejo. Is it worth trying with a Reposado or will it be too different?


bza commented on 6/27/2014:

Haven't tried it with reposado, but imo there are no two more different age statements than reposado and añejo, they are practically different liquors. That said, I don't see why reposado wouldn't work in this drink as long as you had something hefty and peppery rather than smooth and light. It would definitely be a different drink, though.

Fixed, thanks, and I love that you proofread cocktail recipes at 8 in the morning. Keep on!


This drink is sometimes made in equal parts with mezcal as the base spirit and no tequila (or rinse). I prefer it that way, but in either version it's a top shelf drink. (Source: asking at The NoMad.)
