“The Vida is strong enough to showcase its smoky qualities while soft enough to not overwhelm the cucumber and Suze. The Suze gives the dry finish that I love and the cinnamon on top shouldn’t work, BUT it does. Also, a pinch of salt! Always!”

3 cucumber slices and a pinch of salt!

1 oz (30 ml) Del Maguey Vida Single Village Mezcal

.75 oz (22.5 ml) Suze

.5 oz (15 ml) Eli Mason Demerarra Syrup

.25 oz (7.5 ml) fresh grapefruit juice

1 cucumber slice, as garnish

Grated cinnamon, as garnish

Muddle the cucumber slices and salt in a shaker. Add remaining ingredients. Shake over ice, and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Add the garnishes.
