before night falls

1 oz Mezcal
1 oz Manzanilla Sherry
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
1/4 oz Combier Kümmel
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
For my first drink at Estragon, I asked bartender Sahil Mehta for the Before Night Falls. The drink's aroma was dominated by the kümmel spice especially the cumin, and the sip was rather crisp and clean from the sherry and lime components. Finally, the swallow was the combination of smoky agave and savory herbal from the pairing of the kümmel with the Chartreuse.
