Muddle one fresh cherry with the lime juice and a pinch of dried hibiscus flowers. Add the remaining ingredients, saving the mezcal to float, to a shaker and shake with ice. Float the mezcal on top. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass which has been rimmed with an equal measure of mesquite smoked salt, cruched chipotle pepper and sugar. Garnish with another fresh cherry
This drink is the essence of Santa Fe, combining subtle heat from the chili syrup, smoke from the Balcone Brimstone, sweetness from the syrup and Cointreau, balanced by the tart tang of the lime.
