Mezcal, the smokier cousin to tequila, mixed with Utah local, Waterpocket Distillery’s pre-Prohibition herbal spirit Long Lost™ Oread, is a creative take on a summer classic.
- ½ Oz Oread Liquor from Waterpocket Distillery*
- ½ Oz Agave Syrup
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- 1 ½ Espadin Mezcal
Fill your shaker or mug with the Espadin Mezcal, Oread (Pronouned Our-ee-odd), agave syrup, and the juice of one lemon. If using a shaker, mix ingredients by “dry shaking” without ice. If using a mug, mix together thoroughly with a stir spoon.
Next take a rocks glass or mug and fill ¾ of glass with crushed ice or one giant cube. Finally, pour your freshly shaken cocktail over the ice. Top with twisted lemon peel or a sprig of rosemary for garnish.
About Waterpocket Distillery's Long Lost™ Oread:
"Our spirit summons the pure essences of aromatic roots, spices, and flowers. We've combined Roman Chamomile Galanga, Star Anise, Orange Peel, and eight more herbs and spices to produce an all botanical liqueur of rare charm.
Adapted from a set of classic recipes from the rich tradition of 19th Century Danzig Liqueurs, our first LONG LOST™ release pulls from the rich traditions of the old world, now resurrected for the wild high country of the Mountain West."
