El Flor de Humo Cocktail

Feb 9, 2012 4:01 pm

A smoky, citrus-spiked mezcal and tequila cocktail

The Flor de Humo, a favorite from Rosa Mexicano’s Cocteles Agitados (Shaken Cocktails) menu, is made with La Arenita tequila, Del Maguey-Vida mezcal and St-Germain. The fresh citrus is complemented by the floral notes in the St-Germain, balanced by the slight smokiness of the mezcal. And further balanced by a side of chips and guacamole, naturally. That's right, we do not advocate drinking mezcal on an empty stomach. Note: To make the agave mix, combine equal parts agave and hot water, and refrigerate until needed.
