I saw a recipe for a "Mezcal Smash" with pineapple and cinnamon syrup. They said that the pineapple and cinnamon paired surprisingly well with the smoky mezcal. I was discussing smoke sources with the world renouned chef Professor G who suggested Lapsang Souchong, a smoked tea. Then he most graciously mailed me some to experiment with ~ thank you Greg

I went with the most simple first;
1 of sour - lime juice
2 of sweet - 1.5 of pineapple juice and 0.5 of cinnamon syrup
3 of strong - Cruzan Aged
4 of weak - brewed Lapsang Souchong tea



I chose the black straw to accentuate the smokiness of the drink

Was it a well balanced cocktail? I wouldn't know a balanced cocktail if it bit me on the arse! On my first sip, I thought the smoke of the Lapsang overpowered everything else. But after a few sips the smoke didn't seem so strong and the other flavers came through except the cinnamon. I added another half part of cinnamon syrup and like the results better.

I may have to make some Lapsang syrup next.

That looks great MDM! It was super nice of the Professor to send you the tea (kudos to you, G).

Question... If it's called a Mezcal Smash, shouldn't it have Mezcal in it? Did you just sub the rum for an experiment?
Either way, I'm sure it was tasty!

Cheers!

QTiki, the drink I made wasn't very similar at all to the Mezcal Smash, but I wanted to make a rum drink with smoke, pineapple, and cinnamon

MEZCAL SMASH
2 1 inch cubes pineapple (muddled)
1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon simple syrup
1/4 cup mezcal
crushed ice

Boo Loo in a hollowed-out pineapple. Sharing the drink in a second pineapple with my neighbor and his wife - their first "real" tropical cocktails with rums of decent pedigree. Sort of a gesture to bring a little tiki to the local natives... The good news is that they were very receptive!

Funny, I had an Appleton sidecar at Momo's this past Monday before the Giant's game. Bartender looked at me like I was nuts . . . it was tasty!

Porpoise, that got my attention... A couple of years ago my sense of adventure, almost spur-of-the-moment, took me to the "big" Oktoberfest in Munich -- and then again two years later because it was so much fun. The food... The beer... The friendly people... It's all true! If anyone needs a travel recommendation, there you have it, a no-brainer. I even visited Trader Vics downtown which was cool. I'm figuring out a way to go back again real soon. Yes, we all had THAT good of a time. And one of the biggest take-aways was the amazing craftsmanship in wood and stone carvings we saw everywhere we went in Europe. Truly amazing.

Pouring Ribbons in NY has a drink on their menu called Dueling Banjos which is described as basically a Mai Tai subbing 2 bourbons for the rums, lemon for the lime and corn milk (the juice from fresh corn kernels) for the orgeat. I won't be getting to NY anytime soon so I decided to take a crack at it based only on description. They call for Weller Special Reserve and Eagle Rare for the bourbons. I have the Eagle Rare but can't get the Weller in Ontario. Since it's a wheat-based bourbon, I used Maker's Mark instead. They call for Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao which is also unavailable in Ontario so I used Grand Marnier which is the best quality curacao available here. I followed the Trader Vic's ratios since that's my favorite Mai Tai version (using 1/2 oz corn milk in place of the orgeat and simple) it was a bit heavy on the tart so I added a bit of simple and it balanced out nicely. Since I have no idea what it actually tastes like, I don't know how close I got. But what I did end up with is tasty even if I'm way off.



It should have a mint garnish, I snapped the pic before I remembered to go outside and grab a healthy sprig.

Tonight I whipped up a tribute to a "lost cocktail" of The Mai-Kai, the Impatient Virgin ...



The Impatient Virgin was Mariano Licudine's version of Don the Beachcomber's Vicious Virgin: Lime juice, Cointreau, falernum, multiple rums.

Our tribute recipe reinterprets this classic and predicts what The Mai-Kai's version may have tasted like. Was this the inspiration for the Derby Daiquiri?
