Two Oaxacan Negronis with grapefruit garnish

Inspired by Mexico’s vibrant Oaxaca state, the Oaxacan Negroni is a smoky testament to the versatility of the original recipe. Using the classic equal parts ratio, gin is replaced with mezcal, and with it comes an avalanche of new flavours. During mezcal’s production process, the agave is roasted in fire pits, giving the spirit its earthy, nutty, savoury, and smoky character.   

Combine that with the citrus, spice, herbal, and wooded flavours of Campari and vermouth, and you’ve got a cocktail flavour bomb. The Oaxacan Negroni is more than just a cocktail. It’s a cultural experience that features the best of Mexico and Italy.

QUICK TIPS

Chill your glasses for at least 30 minutes before serving.

03

Twist the grapefruit peel over the glass to release the oils into the cocktail before garnishing.
