lust for life

1 1/2 oz Del Maguey Mezcal Vida (Fidencio Joven)
3/4 oz Lustau Palo Cortado Sherry (3/8 oz each Lustau Oloroso and Amontillado)
3/4 oz Orgeat
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Pineapple Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a rocks glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with a dusting of cocoa powder.
Two Mondays ago, I reached for Emma Janzen's Mezcal book, and my search ended with Joaquin Simo's Lust for Life that he created at Pouring Ribbons in 2012. Once prepared, the Lust for Life greeted the nose with smoke and chocolate aromas. Next, a creamy lemon and pineapple sip slid into a mezcal and nutty grape swallow.
