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.
