Napoleon's Loss from 1534
An allusion to the former French empire's withdrawal from Mexico and all its agave splendor, Napoleon's Loss is your gain in this cocktail from New York's 1534: tequila, lemon and ginger-agave syrup with a little smoky mezcal on top.
Note: You can buy ginger juice for the ginger syrup, but it's better to make your own using a juicer or a blender and strainer.
