Muletide Cocktail

A festive riff on a spicy Mezcal Mule? Don't mind if I do! 

 

Muletide Cocktail

 1 1⁄2 oz mezcal (Miracle uses Del Maguey Vida)
3⁄4 oz Amontillado sherry
3⁄4 oz ginger syrup
1⁄2 oz fresh lemon juice
1⁄2 oz allspice liqueur

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 10–15 seconds, then strain into a rocks glass over a single large ice cube. Twist a lemon peel over the cocktail to extract the oils, then discard.

 

Notes: A medium-dry sherry, Amontillado is one of our favorite fortified wines. Lustau's is affordable and easy to find, but a good liquor store will also carry St. Elizabeth's Allspice Dram, aka Christmas in a Bottle and a critical Tiki ingredient. Although you can buy good ginger syrup, it's also a snap to make at home. Roughly peel several pieces of ginger, then finely grate before pressing through a cheesecloth to extract as much liquid as possible (or just juice them). Measure, then slowly add double the volume of granulated sugar to liquid, whisking together to dissolve the sugar before using.
