Maguey Harvest Cocktail with Tim Master
Mezcal is an often misunderstood spirit. Although similar to Tequila, it is worlds apart in many ways. Tim Master, Director of Specialty Spirits Division and Trade Education at Frederick Wildman & Sons, brought Ilegal Mezcal to share with Kathy and taught her a bit about this robust and unique spirit. Tim also shared his recipe for a wonderful winter Mezcal cocktail, the Maguey Harvest.
1 1/2 oz Ilegal Mezcal Reposado 1/2 oz cinnamon gomme syrup 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice 1 1/2 fresh apple cider
Shake with ice. Strain in to a cocktail glass. Garnish with grated nutmeg. Alternatively, you could warm the ingredients over a low flame. Do not boil. Serve hot in mugs.
