The other cocktail I had at Brick & Mortar was another of Misty Kalkofen's creations called A Slow Dance with Pedro Infante. José Pedro Infante Cruz is one of the most famous actors and singers of the golden age of Mexican cinema, and he frequently sang slow, danceable songs during his movies. The drink itself greeted the nose with a smoky agave aroma. A caramel sip from the Averna led into a mezcal and herbal swallow and a Gran Classico bitter finish.
