1 1/2 oz El Buho Mezcal
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Honey Syrup
1/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/4 oz Angostura Bitters
1 barspoon Allspice Dram
1 Whole Egg
Shake once without ice and once with ice. Strain into a rocks glass and garnish with 3 drops of Jerry Thomas Decanter Bitters.
For a final drink at Backbar, I asked bartender Kobie Ali for the Feliz Flip described on the menu as, "This mezcal Flip with egg, honey, and lots of Angostura Bitters will make you happy!" Kobie mentioned that this was his creation and that he had been dying to do a mezcal Flip for quite a while. In the glass, it offered a smoky agave aroma. Next, a creamy honey and lemon sip gave way to an agave and cherry wood spice swallow. Finally, as the drink warmed up a bit, it gained additional honey, allspice, and clove flavors.
