About this Cocktail

An allusion to the former French empire's withdrawal from Mexico and all its agave splendor, Napoleon's Loss is your gain in this cocktail from New York's 1534: tequila, lemon and ginger-agave syrup with a little smoky mezcal on top.

Note: You can buy ginger juice for the ginger syrup, but it's better to make your own using a juicer or a blender and strainer.

Ingredients:
  • GINGER-AGAVE SYRUP
  • 1 1/2 oz agave nectar
  • 1 1/2 oz fresh ginger juice
  • COCKTAIL
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz ginger-agave syrup
  • 2 oz anejo tequila
  • 1/4 oz mezcal
Preparation:

1. For the ginger-agave syrup: In a resealable jar, stir ginger juice into agave nectar until loosened. Cover and shake well. Store for up to 1 week, shake before using. Recipe makes enough syrup for four cocktails.

2. For the cocktail: Combine lemon juice, ginger-agave syrup, and tequila in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice and shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds.

3. Strain into a double rocks glass over a large ice cube. Top with mezcal and serve.
