Recipe:

Smoke and Clove

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup mezcal
  • 8-10 whole cloves
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar

Instructions

  • Make the Clove Simple Syrup by stirring together brown sugar, 1/2 cup water, and cloves in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool completely, about 30 minutes. Discard cloves. Syrup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for one week.
  • Place mezcal, 1 1/2 tbsp Clove Simple Syrup, orange juice, lime juice and bitters in a cocktail shaker. Add crushed ice to fill shaker. Secure lid on shaker; shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a clove-studded orange wheel.
