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.

Ingredients

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

  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake, then add ice and shake a second time, hard.
  2. Strain into a brandy snifter with ice and top with seltzer water, then garnish with a lime twist and strawberry.
