smoke in mirrors

1 1/2 oz Manzanilla Sherry (Lustau Fino)
1 oz Lime Juice
3/4 oz Mezcal (Fidencio)
3/4 oz Rosé Syrup (Equal parts rosé wine (Boyal) & sugar)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Wednesdays ago, I opened up Drew Lazor's Session Cocktails book and spotted the Smoke in Mirrors that would utilize an opened bottle of rosé wine in the fridge. The recipe itself was crafted by the editors of Punch Drinks, and I was intrigued at how sherry was the base with mezcal as an accent here. Once prepared, the Smoke in Mirrors met the nose with a smoke and vegetal aroma. Next, lime and wine notes on the sip smoldered into mezcal and savory flavors on the swallow with a fruity wine finish from the rosé.
