Smokin’ Hopps

Adapted from a recipe by Seth Laufman, Burritt Room, San Francisco, CA.

“Refreshing and unique.” Seth Laufman.

60 ml (2 oz) vida Mezcal

15 ml (.5 oz) simple syrup (rich)

15 ml (.5 oz) fresh lemon juice

15 ml (.5 oz) Licor 43

60 ml (2 oz) India Pale Ale

Shake and strain the first four ingredients into chilled fizz glass. Top with the ale.

gaz sez:   Oh.  My.  God.  How damned weird can you get?  I don’t think I could spend much time in Seth’s head, but I have to hand it to him-he came off with one very original drink here.  And it works, too.  Well done, young man.
