From other users
  • Used Sacrificio mezcal and Herbsaint. In the neighborhood of a Lawn Dart, which I think I prefer. — ☆☆☆
  • Made, most recently, with Pierde Almas Maguey de Lumbre mezcal. Also, substituted Vieux Pontarlier absinthe for the pastis. Amazing smoky vegetal flavor from the mezcal and oregano combination. — ☆☆☆☆☆

Nicely balanced drink! The

Nicely balanced drink! The pastis and oregano work really well together, and I was skeptical... I used Vida mezcal which maybe didn't pack enough of a smoky punch, so I added a bit more and some celery bitters to give it a little more zing. I'll have to try again with the recommended mezcal if I can find it...
