A smoky twist to this Italian Aperitivo classic by substituting mezcal for gin. I love using Del Maguey's Vida to create this delicious bitter and sweet cocktail with a soft silky texture. The perfect pre-dinner cocktail to enjoy on a breezy summer night for mezcal aficionados to sip chilled rocks glass with ice.
THE MEZCAL NEGRONI
Add Campari, mezcal, and vermouth to mixing glass with ice and stir to combine. Strain mixture into chilled rocks glass with ice. Garnish with orange peel. To add the cocktail more intensity to the flavor, squeeze the orange peel and rub the zest around the glass’s rim.
