According to the Death&Co cocktail book this cocktail also calls for 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon bark syrup. The year of creation is set to 2011.

This is a 5 star. I'm paring down my bar to about 15 bottles (not counting repeats like both Chartreuse or clear and aged rum) and mezcal didn't make the cut; I don't use it enough or love it. With this drink though, that's a sad thought. I did use regular syrup because I don't have cinnamon.
