1 piece candied ginger, for garnish
Freshly cracked black pepper, for garnish
Ginger syrup soda
Muddle the sage, jalapeño, kiwi and cucumber in a shaker with lemon and lime juice. Pour in mezcal and ice. Shake well with ice in the shaker tin, then strain over ice into the mule mug. Pour ginger syrup soda on top, and garnish with skewered ginger and sage. Flake freshly cracked black pepper on top, and singe the sage with a match.
This spin on the Moscow is catered to new enthusiasts of mezcal and traditionalists who love a bold scotch cocktail. If you can imagine a Penicillin (a cocktail that blends scotch, honey ginger syrup and fresh lemon juice) with personality and a lava pit for a playground. This tropical concoction offers up a little taste of Mexico’s pride, California’s love and Hawaii’s freedom.
