Description: Azure Smoke is a visually striking cocktail that combines the earthy smokiness of mezcal with the vibrant hue of blue curaçao. Balanced with fresh citrus and a hint of sweetness, this cocktail is a unique blend of flavors that's sure to intrigue and refresh. A touch of egg white is added for a complex, silky texture, complemented by a delicate smoke infusion to heighten the sensory experience. Ingredients: - 2 oz Mezcal - 1 oz Blue Curaçao - 3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice - 1/2 oz Simple Syrup - 1/2 oz Egg White (optional, for froth and texture) - A pinch of Sea Salt - Crushed Ice - Edible silver dust (optional, for garnish) - An orange twist and a sprig of thyme, for garnish Glass: Serve in a chilled coupe glass. Instructions: 1. In a shaker, combine mezcal, blue curaçao, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, egg white (if using), and a pinch of sea salt. 2. Dry shake (without ice) vigorously for about 15 seconds to emulsify the egg white. 3. Add crushed ice to the shaker and shake again until well-chilled. 4. Double strain into the chilled coupe glass to create a smooth, frothy texture. 5. If desired, lightly sprinkle edible silver dust over the foam for an elegant shimmer. 6. Carefully express the orange twist over the cocktail to release its oils, then rim the glass with it. Discard the twist. 7. Garnish with a fresh sprig of thyme. 8. Optionally, you can infuse the cocktail with smoke by capturing smoke from smoldering a thyme sprig or a piece of wood, and trapping it in the glass before pouring the cocktail. Lift the glass in front of the guest to release
