From Imbibe

A slight twist on a Jungle Bird, with a sweet/tart taste. Yes, it goes beautifully with the smoky goodness that is Mezcal. Tonight I’m using Banhez, from @banhezmezcalartesanal, a farmer and family owned brand from Oaxaca, Mexico.

I’m not really sure who created this cocktail, but it wasn’t me. It could be Paul Shanrock, as he is mentioned in the article, but not credited with the creation, or riff.

45ml Mezcal- Banhez used
22.5ml Campari
15ml PX sherry
7.5ml Triple Sec-Cointreau used
45ml Pineapple Juice
15ml Fresh Lime Juice
4 dashes Angostura bitters

It’s been another beautiful Spring day here, and this will top it off nicely. Fresh mint, from my roof. Just need a bit more warmth to get it growing nicely. Along with all my other stuff up there.

My bees – I buy as a hive, from a place in Belgium. They come as a hommelkast, a bumblebee nest, already set up. All I have to do is put it somewhere safe, and they do the rest.

Ironically, it just started to rain as the photo was going to be taken.
