2 cents

1 oz Mezcal (Mezcal Union)
1/2 oz Laird's Applejack (Laird's Bonded)
1/2 oz Carpano Antica (Lacuesta Rojo Vermouth)
1/4 oz Crème de Cacao (Tempus Fugit)
1 bsp Fernet Branca
1 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Sunday two weeks ago, I returned to Kindred Cocktails when I spotted a recipe created in 2011 at Mayahuel called the 2 Cents. It reminded me of their All Jacked Up but with crème de cacao and molé bitters instead of Maraschino liqueur. In the glass, the 2 Cents showcased a mezcal and herbal aroma. Next, grape and apple notes on the sip led into mezcal, apple, chocolate, and minty-menthol flavors on the swallow.
