Shake with ice, strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with cayenne chili powder.
My Negroni Week 2023 offering. A mashup of the Red Grasshopper (tequila, honey, lime, garnish cayenne powder) and a Mezcal Negroni.
I decided to make a mashup of the Red Grasshopper with the Mezcal Negroni after spotting the cayenne pepper powder on the shelf as Negroni Week 2023 was coming up. I dubbed the end result the Gusano Rojo which is the Red Chili Worm that grows on mezcal plants.
