Smoky Sunset

A long stretch of desert highway, a fading day, a fire in the distance...
1 oz Mezcal, Del Maguey
1 oz Gran Classico
1 oz Rosato Vermouth, Atsby Armadillo Cake
1 ds Bitters, Bittermens New Orleans Coffee (I used Crude Big Beak, Coffee & cocoa bitters)
Instructions
This is a smoky Negroni replacement - build it in the glass, or stir it up and strain it into a glass with one big cube. And reflect on a summer evening’s approach in AZ or NM.
From other users
  • Nice negroni riff. I used campari/aperol .66 and .33 for the Gran Clasico. On Vermouth, used .66 Rosato and .33 Rosato infused with smoked chipotle chilies. Finished with autumn bonfire aromatic. — ☆☆☆☆
