the man from nowhere

1 1/2 oz Mezcal (Peloton de la Muerte)
1/2 oz Suze Gentian Liqueur
1/2 oz Benedictine
1/2 oz Lime Juice
2 dash Mole Bitters (Angostura Cocoa)
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
I decided on Sunday night two weeks ago to continue tinkering with the Suze-Benedictine combination and took it in the direction of a mezcal citrus drink. For a name, I dubbed the creation The Man from Nowhere after the 1969 Spaghetti Western film. In the glass, it shared a vegetal, lime, and smoke aroma. Next, lime and caramel on the sip shot into smoky vegetal, herbal, and clove flavors on the swallow.
