Two weeks of January being dry and cold were enough for me, so now we are heading south to Mexico via London for some very au currant Mezcal with our guest today, would-be philosopher turned distiller Ben Schroder.

Our Cocktail of the Week is the Mezcal Left Hand:

  • 50ml Pensador Mezcal
  • 25ml Vermouth
  • 25ml Campari
  • 2 dashes chocolate bitters

Combine all of the following in a mixing glass with ice. Stir it all to chill, then strain into chilled martini glass.

Always remember the wise words of Oscar Wilde, “All things in moderation, including moderation,” and always drink responsibly!
