The Yellow Smoke

Necessity is the mother of invention, right? With my home bar in such an advanced state of disrepair, I had to get creative for my dinner party. I pre-batched a bunch of cocktails, using what I had on hand, rather than just giving people open access. I found a recipe that combined mezcal (smoky tequila) with yellow Chartreuse, and at first I was very skeptical. I would never have thought to combine those two things in a million years.

However, it was surprisingly delicious.

1 oz mezcal
1 oz yellow Chartreuse
3/4 oz lime juice
1/4 oz OJ

Shake with ice, and strain.
