Notes

Amazing cocktail. one of my favorites to make at home. You'd be surprised how balanced and easy to drink this is being composed of such strong ingredients.

History

I found the basis for the recipe on the sfgate link, but added chocolate bitters. Also, their original name was terrible.

  • Very tasty and balance. Slightly sweet, somewhat herbal, slightly smokey. — ★★★★
  • So-so. Tequila with smoke and an herbal kick. Seems to be missing something. Maybe it was my mood. — ★★
  • Subtle flavors. I was concerned that the ratios would make the Chartreuse overwhelm the mescal, but the tastes are well balanced. On borderline of 4 stars — ★★★

Tried the original recipe without the bitter and with the garnish (though I agree - terrible name!) and this is kind of a brilliant drink. It's so proofed I wouldn't think it would work, but it is really well-balanced and you get all three ingredients. This is a great drink for the high rollers who want to throw around the good añejo.

I love this drink. The more sublime the tequila the better.
