Ask and Receive

Josh, our new friend and bartender at Sable, whipped up this velvety-delicious cocktail for us after we asked about the Aztec Chocolate Bitters behind the bar. He added amaro, mezcal, tequila, and sweet vermouth, and called it “The Drink I Just Made for You.”meso-cocktail-sable
1/2 oz. Carpano Antica
1/2 oz. Amaro Averna
1 1/2 oz. Vida Mezcal
1/2 oz. Corralejo Tequila Reposada
2 dashes Azteca Chocolate Bitters
Stir and serve with a maraschino cherry.

Smoky, fragrant, chocolatey but not sweet, and strong as hell, we called this drink “Under the Volcano.”

Make yourself a cocktail and read Anthony Bourdain’s powerful article by the same name on the US’s contradictory, untenable relationship to Mexico. More on that soon.
