Pour-Over Mezcal Negroni
1 oz. Vida Mezcal (@delmagueymezcal)
1 oz. Campari (@campariofficial)
1 oz. Punt E Mes (@puntemes_it)
2 dashes Moondog bitters (@bittered_sling)
A few things brought me here. First, Fede (@welcometomybar) uploaded a post recently which reminded me how tasty a mezcal Negroni was. Second, I remember Faith (@barfaith) talking about "pour-over coffee" cocktails a while ago, which is something I've always wanted to try. Given that coffee and mezcal work so well together, I thought this would be the perfect cocktail to try as my first pour-over coffee cocktail.
Such an easy technique to do, that can yield some seriously tasty results. I assembled my mezcal Negroni stirred, like I normally would, then poured it over some coffee grounds in a dripper. The cocktail filters out, lightly "infused" with coffee notes. Some smoky, peppery Moondog bitters were the perfect finishing touch to round out this delightful aperitif. 😋
