2 oz Mezcal, Del Maguey Vida (cantaloupe infused, see note)
1⁄2 oz Lime juice
1⁄2 oz Curaçao

Combine cantaloupe-infused mezcal with other ingredients, shake and strain into a coupe. Garnish with 1 cantaloupe ice sphere.


To make infused mezcal, infuse 3 days with ripe cantaloupe, skin removed and roughly chopped (seeds included). To make the ice sphere, use a mellon baller to scoop from a cantaloupe, then freeze.
