Mezcal Sour

Spring 2021

food and drink

BY: Christopher St. Onge

This utterly delicious cocktail borrows a little from a traditional Sour (the lemon juice) and a little from a Margarita (the salt) but drinks more like a Sour, albeit with a fine, smoky edge from the mezcal. Pineapple juice, when given a hard dry (without ice) shake, foams beautifully and holds this supple layer forever. It’s used here in place of an egg white—the usual addition to a Sour.

1. In a cocktail shaker without ice, combine 1 1/2 oz mezcal, 1 oz lemon juice, 1 oz pineapple juice, 1/2 oz agave syrup and a pinch salt. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds, add ice and shake 15 seconds longer. Pour into a rocks glass over a single large ice cube. Garnish with a pineapple leaf.
