Try Del Maguey Vida Mezcal in a Maximilian Affair cocktail
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal offers whiffs of smoked, spiced, ripe fruit followed by light cinnamon and a touch of honeysuckle. Use it in place of tequila in your favorite cocktail or in the new classic, Maximilian Affair.
In an ice-filled shaker, mix 1 ounce mezcal, 1 ounce elderflower liqueur, ½ ounce sweet vermouth and ½ ounce lemon juice. Shake 20 seconds and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
$37. Available at Randall’s Wine & Spirits
