This summer, I decided to create a fizz featuring my favorite smoky agave spirit, mezcal. The Burning Berry, is a sweet, smoky cocktail that turns the classic fizz on its head.
|1½ oz Mezcal|
|Juice of 1 lime|
|Juice of half a lemon|
|½ oz rock candy syrup|
|Several dashes strawberry bitters|
|Lime twist and strawberry for garnish|
Preparation: How to make a Burning Berry
- Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake, then add ice and shake a second time, hard.
- Strain into a brandy snifter with ice and top with seltzer water, then garnish with a lime twist and strawberry.
