Tobacco Road Recipe

Tobacco Road
Nick Caruana

Pairing smoky mezcal with briny sherry and vegetal Cynar makes for one tasty drink with a great tobacco-laced scent. A pinch of salt and a grapefruit twist help bring out the flavors.

Note: Use aged mezcal for this drink: the result will be smoother and more full of flavor.
