  • I tried the equal parts version and found the mezcal and fernet too dominant (though that subsided as I made my way through the drink). Might be worth trying again with the listed specs.

Curated this - a lot. Added name, corrected attribution, cleaned up the ingredients (moved Cherry Heering from title to ingredient list, changed Mezcal (crema) to Crema de Mezcal, added float and garnish to the ingredients from the instructions).

The Del Maguey website has this as an ounce each of Vida, fernet, heering, and lime, topped with ginger beer. 

Curated this - it now agrees with the Del Maguey site and Fred Yarm (at the link) - previously, it was 2:1/2:1/2:1
