A tribute to bar builders Allsorts Inc. and their liquid namesake, a hodgepodge of beer, this agave-based cocktail from Beloved in Greenpoint, Brooklyn mixes mezcal, tequila, pear eau de vie, and Velvet Falernum for a lightly citric baked-fruit flavor. It's grassy, sweet, fruity, plus a little bit spicy and sour all at once.
