The smokey character of this spirit works perfectly in a Mezcal Negroni, working around the bitterness of the aperitivo. Where gin is great, Mezcal Gin is all time!

What is Mezcal Gin?

Mezcal Gin takes a base of Mezcal produced in Durango from sustainable wild Cenzio Agave, infused with classic and Mexican botanicals.

The botanicals in Mezcal Gin include (Mexican botanicals in Bold):

  • Juniper
  • Cardamom
  • Angelica
  • coriander
  • Dragon eye
  • Guinea pepper
  • Orange peel
  • Nutmeg
  • Chile ancho
  • Hibiscus
  • Lemongrass
  • Avocado leaves
  • It’s smokey complexity works stunningly well here, mixed with Campari and Antica Formula for an earthy sweet vermouth.
  • The Mezcal Negroni itself could barely be more perfect for hipster bartenders with these ingredients! Bitter, smokey, stirred down and boozy!

How to make a Mezcal Negroni

  • 1oz (30ml) Mezcal Gin
  • 1oz (30ml) Campari
  • 1oz (30ml) Carpano Antica Formula

Stir with ice and strain over fresh ice in an Old Fashioned glass with a lime wedge.
