1 oz Mezcal (Bozal)
1 oz Dry vermouth (Priorat Natur Vermut)
1⁄2 oz Bruto Americano, St. George
1⁄2 oz Gran Classico
1 Lemon peel (as garnish)
1 Orange peel (as garnish)

Combine liquid ingredients with ice and stir. Pour into old fashion glass with large ice cube. Garnish with large peel segments of orange and lemon. Initially express oils into the drink, and secure to a cocktail stick to ensure the scent lingers throughout the duration of the drink.


Upfront and lingering citrus with pleasant cool smoke. Well balanced bitterness with the Bruto medicinal herbalness tamed by the vermut.


I have a tendency to over complicate drinks and refine them over time. This particular cocktail takes advantage of Bozal tequila that is lightly smoked (use 1/2 blanco and 1/2 Vido, if Bozal is not available), vermut that falls halfway between dry vermouth and sherry, finally the dual bitter Gran Classico and Bruto Americano. So, you get six flavors with only four ingredients.
