This innovative cocktail is a delightful blend of smoky, herbal, and sour notes, perfect for those who appreciate the depth of mezcal without the common company of whiskey, rum, vodka, or tequila. It utilizes an amaro to introduce a sophisticated bitterness, balanced by the fresh herbal factor of sage. The drink is both refreshing and complex, sure to tantalize your taste buds. Ingredients: - 2 oz Mezcal (Pick a quality brand that emphasizes a smoky profile) - 3/4 oz Fresh lime juice - 1/2 oz Amaro (Choose a less bitter variety for a balanced flavor) - 1/2 oz Simple syrup - 3 Fresh sage leaves (plus more for garnish) - Egg white from one egg (optional, for frothiness and a silky texture) - Ice Instructions: 1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle 3 sage leaves gently to release their essential oils. 2. Add the mezcal, fresh lime juice, Amaro, simple syrup, and egg white (if using) into the shaker. 3. Dry shake (without ice) vigorously for about 15 seconds to properly emulsify the egg white. 4. Add a handful of ice to the shaker and shake again vigorously for about 20 seconds to chill the mixture properly. 5. Double strain into a chilled coupe glass to prevent any small ice shards or sage bits in the drink. 6. Garnish with a sage leaf floating on top or a light smack of a sage leaf and place it on the rim for an aromatic experience.
