Woke Up Dead

“… I heard Jamal from 90th street, he watched that tape last week, and this morning he woke up dead!”  – Scary Movie

Jamal probably drank like, 20 of these. It would probably take that many. However, just because it doesn’t have a high alcohol content, does not mean in any way that it is not good.

Here’s how we made it:

Woke Up Dead
Rinse glass with Mezcal

1.5 oz. Tequila
1 oz. Licor 43
0.5 oz. Lime Juice
0.5 oz. Lemon Juice
0.5 oz. Egg Whites
1 tsp. Simple Syrup
2 dsh Angostura Bitters

Add ingredients to shaker
Shake until sufficiently cold
Strain into mezcal-rinsed glass over 1 large cube

Notes: Overall, lots of good citrus flavors, OBVIOUSLY. The mezcal rinse imparts just enough smoke, but doesn’t overwhelm the profile of the other ingredients.
