Oahaca Mezcal Cocktail

Feeling like a refreshing and smokey cocktail for the season? What about this Oahaca  (Oaxaca + basil in Spanish: albahaca):

1.5 oz Del Maguey Vida Mezcal

0.5 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur

2-3 basil leaves

1.5 oz of pineapple juice

1 dash of chocolate bitters

Top it up with soda water


We recommend it with some tacos al pastor while listening to Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, salud!
