2 oz Mezcal
1 oz Aromatized wine, Lillet Blanc
1 rinse Absinthe
Instructions

Stir with ice and pour into a chilled coupe.

Notes

Anise and licorice on the nose, smoke on the tongue and then a touch of chocolate on the finish. If you want a hint of fruit, consider adding an orange twist.

History

I came up with this while rewatching 24 and thinking that Thanksgiving should be dedicated to Jack Bauer and the many, many times he's stopped widespread disaster. Hence the smoky destruction of Mezcal, with a hint of holiday sweetness in the absinthe and creme de cacao.

  • This is sweet enough for dessert, but tasty enough for anytime! Wonderful. Orange peel is a nice touch. Also could add a couple chili flakes for a slightly different take. I added chocolate bitters. — ★★★★
  • Pretty good. I figured what the heck and gave it a couple drops of Aztec chocolate bitters too. Thumbs up. — ★★★★
