About this Cocktail

An original by yours truly.
I'm not normally a big vodka person, but after attending a seminar with St. George Spirits early last year and sampling their Green Chile Vodka, I knew it belonged in my bar. My first thoughts were how I wanted to pair it with mezcal.
In this drink, smokiness from the mezcal combines with green chile pepper and pineapple flavors, reminiscent of grilled kabobs in the summer.

Ingredients:
  • 1.5 oz St. George Green Chile Vodka
  • .5 oz Del Maguey Vida mezcal
  • .5 oz fresh lemon juice
  • .5 oz Liber & Co pineapple gum syrup
  • 1 dash Bittermens Boston Bittahs
Preparation:

Combine/shake all ingredients with ice, strain into Nick & Nora glass.

The above recipe I found to be the most balanced... but feel free to up the Vida to 3/4oz for more smokey flavors, or sub in Chichicapa for even more pepper notes.

    Wow, I have a bottle of the Green Chile Vodka but never know what to pair it with. This looks like a great direction!

    Why not use lime juice instead?

    I feel lime doesn't really work as well with the green pepper flavors.
