The Night Swim
Recipe by DeVonn Francis
This mezcal-based cocktail balances foam from egg white, bright acidity, smoke, and herbaceousness all in one glass. The perfect compliment to a night in or for an avid entertainer looking to impress.
1½ oz. fresh lime juice
1½ oz. Madre Mezcal
1 oz. Green Chartreuse
1 teaspoon. light agave nectar
1 large egg white
lime twist to garnish
Shake lime juice, mezcal, chartreuse, agave, and egg white in a cocktail shaker (or in a tightly lidded 1-qt. glass jar) until frothy, about 1 minute. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake again until outside of shaker is frosty (about 30 seconds).
Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lime twist.
