This cocktail was created by Tarrant’s West marketing manager Andrea Hughes. The Belle Isle Honey Habanero Moonshine plays well with the grilled grapefruit and the mezcal adds a distinct smokiness. The Bittermans Hellfire bitters rounds out the cocktail and adds an extra kick.
1.5 oz. Belle Isle Premium Honey Habanero Moonshine
1 oz. Grilled Grapefruit juice
.25 oz. Del Maguey Vida Single Village Mezcal
.5 oz. Simple syrup
5 dashes of Bittermans Hellfire habanero shrub bitters
Add all ingredients to mixing glass with ice and shake. Strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice and garnish with grilled grapefruit slice.
