1 1⁄2 oz Mezcal, Del Maguey Vida
1⁄2 oz Bénédictine
1⁄2 oz Ancho Reyes chile liqueur
2 pn Berbere spice

Stir, strain, coupe


The heat will depend on whose Berbere you use.


My wife challenged me to create a drink incorporating her Berbere spice mix, and this is the pleasantly surprising result. I think even Phil Ward would approve

  • Very good - love the berbere use. I subbed in a pepper infused vodka, a bit of ss, and a spray of Laphroaig for the Ancho. Must try w/ Ancho when I get it. — ★★★★
  • for Ryan and Jackie — ★★★★★
  • Go heavier on the pinches of berbere. — ★★★★
