Are you looking for a new cocktail to sip by the campfire? Or maybe one that’s a bit reminiscent of that rich campfire smoke when you’re stuck indoors one rainy weekend? This drink is just what the doctor ordered. With the smokiness from the mezcal and sweet and punchy taste of honey simple syrup and pineapple juice, this cocktail may just be your new go-to.
Pineapple Mezcal Sour
Rocks glass, chilled (or any glass, really)
1 ¾ ounces mezcal
¾ ounce pineapple juice
½ ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 ounce honey syrup (recipe below)
2 cups honey (preferably local!)
1 cup hot, filtered water
Add the honey and water together, mix until honey is dissolved and mixture is uniform. Seal in a glass container and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Syrup will keep up to one week.
For the cocktail, add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until well chilled.
Pour into your chilled glass filled with ice and garnish however you’d like (including no garnish). Enjoy!
