honky and the donkey

1 oz Del Maguey Mezcal Vida
1 oz Lustau Dry Amontillado Sherry
1/2 oz Benedictine
1/2 oz Cocchi Americano
1 dash Angostura Orange Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass.
After Clio, I continued home and stopped in at Brick and Mortar on the way. For a libation, bartender Kenny Belanger made me the Honky and the Donkey. The drink was a combination of Misty Kalkofen's mixology and owner Patrick Sullivan's naming abilities. The cocktail began with a mezcal and sherry aroma. A slightly sweet sip offered up grape and light citrus notes, and the smoky mezcal swallow shared the sherry's nutty and the Benedictine's herbal flavors.
