By Mixologist Orson Salicetti
We’ve still got a few weeks until February 14th, but we’ve been getting lots of requests for romantic elixirs to mix up for Valentine’s Day, so we consulted a few the experts at Apotheke for this sexy, smoky take on the subect. Most people don’t have tamarind-infused mezcal in the house, so the only prep work you have is to add the tamarind to the mezcal the night, or even better, a few days before and let it infuse.
- 1 ¾ oz. tamarind-infused mezcal
- ¾ oz. Agave lime sour mix
- ¼ oz. Aperol
- 3 drops of Salicetti bitters (or any artisanal housemade bitters will do too)
- Gold leaf (From any baking shop)
Shake and strain into chilled champagne glass fill the rest with the premium champagne. Garnish with a truffle gold leaf.
