Mezcal could be described as Tequila’s “smoky sister”. Both spirits are made with the piña (or heart) of the agave plant, and the distilling process is the same. But for Mezcal, the piñas are cooked in underground pit ovens, a method that gives Mezcal its seductive smoky flavor.

In this cocktail, the sweetness of the honeydew tames down the smoky Mezcal to make a marvelous mélange of flavors. Elderflower liqueur is added to accentuate the honeydew’s floral aromas, and a dash of spicy, smoky chipotle syrup rounds off all the elements of our drink.

All this deliciousness gives us a summery cocktail that’s exotic and alluring – every sip an enchanting trip for the taste buds!
