Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass.


After writing up Eastern Standard's Spanish Lady on the blog, I was inspired to riff on it. I felt that the Montenegro aspect was too bright and that perhaps switching from a light bodied rum to smoky mezcal could help balance that. Part of my thinking was that mezcal and Montenegro go amazingly well together in the 50:50 shooter, the M&M. I also swapped the original's lemon juice and Angostura Bitters to lime juice and molé bitters.
