Matt Hodgson's Picks

End of Summer Picks

Summer might be winding down, but that doesn’t mean summery cocktails need to go away quite yet. For me there is no better spirit to capture this than mezcal. Tropical fruit and citrus come together with pleasant smokiness to match this time of year. Think warm sunny days, followed by an evening bonfire. 

Possibly my favourite part of mezcal is how well it pairs with pineapple. So I suggest trying this cocktail. 

  • 1 jalapeno sliced (remove seeds for less heat)
  • 6 sprigs fresh cilantro
  • 2 ounces Mezcal
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup

Ask me for directions on how to build it from there.
