Kitchen Notes

The Smoky Orange

by Thomas Kelly on Mar 06, 2015

Mezcal is the incredible smoky cousin of tequila. Rimming the rocks glass with Chipotle Chili Salt picks up on that smoky flavor beautifully, and some orange juice and campari round out the cocktail with sweet bitter flavors. 

  • 1.5 oz mezcal (we like El Buho)
  • .75 oz fresh squeezed orange juice
  • .5 oz campari
  • .25 oz simple syrup
  • .25 oz lemon juice
  • chipotle chili salt & thinly sliced orange to garnish

Add mezcal, orange juice, campari, simply syrup and lemon juice to cocktail shaker. Fill with ice & strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with salt & orange wedge. Enjoy.
