Tart, with a touch of bitters for balance, this drink will be a showstopper when the garnish is set aflame.
- 1 tablespoon apricot jam
- 1½ ounces Ilegal Mezcal Joven
- ¾ ounce fresh lime juice
- 3 dashes Bittermens Boston Bittahs
- ½ hallowed lime wedge
- ¾ Green Chartreuse
- Freshly grated cinnamon, for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, add apricot jam, mezcal, lime juice, bitters. Dry shake the cocktail. Add ice and shake once more. Strain the cocktail into a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Place lime wedge on top, and fill with green chartreuse. Light the green chartreuse with a match and sprinkle with ground cinnamon.
Batch rule: Multiply the ingredients for each additional person and simply garnish with lime wedges.
