While I’m the self-proclaimed chef of our little two-person household, my husband is the “mixologist.” He loves experimenting with different homemade cocktail recipes, and they’re always so delicious! He makes a mean Old Fashioned and a Sazerac, but this past Saturday evening, he whipped up a Tobacco Road, a smokey mezcal cocktail with a powerful tobacco taste. I didn’t think I would enjoy it so much (I prefer lighter, fruitier cocktails), but I downed my entire drink like a champ!
Check out the recipe from Serious Eats and pictures from our bar-tending fun below. I’d say go easy on the Cynar–don’t use the full amount the recipe suggests–and add in a little simple syrup to sweeten the drink. It’s definitely a STRONG drink, so take it slowly 🙂
