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.
