This Mezcal Sour is the perfect blend of smokiness from the Mezcal, bitterness and depth from the Amaro, and tang from the fresh lime juice. All of this is topped off with a creamy foam finish.

Mezcal Sour

In my opinion the perfect cocktail is one that has a well balanced mix of flavors. This cocktail is it. The first time I tasted mezcal I was blown away by the smooth smokiness of it. It tastes really good in citrus and fruit cocktails.

That smoke is from the production process where the agave is roasted. If you don’t know about it, learn all about how Mezcal is made. Once you try it, you’ll be looking for more ways to use it in a cocktail, believe me. I’ve got a bunch of favorite mezcal cocktails now.

Amaro is another liquor you may not have tried before. It’s an Italian liqueur that is traditionally sipped after a meal to aid in digestion. It has a mixture of herbs, spices and roots that give it a slight bitterness and earthy flavor. Don’t be put off by that though, it’s actually really good.

How to Make a Mezcal Sour

This recipe uses a 2-step shaking process. You start by adding all of the ingredients to the shaker without any ice and shake it until it’s frothy. This allows time for the foam to form.

Then you add in the ice and shake it a second time to chill the cocktail for serving.

When you pour it, the foamy head will form at the top, just the way you want it to. Then you can add a pretty little swirl of bitters on the top for presentation. Perfection!
