Parched Rose

On Thursday a few weeks back the Mixoloseum hosted TDN: In With Bacchus in honor of Scott from the In With Bacchus blog.I think he mostly got the honor because he offered prizes, but other than that, it was a wide open theme. I wanted to play around with my bottle of Suze, so I threw this luittle number together.
Parched Rose
  • 1 oz mezcal (Chichicapa)
  • 1 oz Suze
  • 1 oz Fino Sherry
  • ¼ oz Maraschino
  • ¾ oz lemon
  • 1 dash Bittermens Xocolatl Mole bitters
  • 1 dash Boker's bitters
shake&Strain into chilled cocktail glass, garnish with rosemary sprig
The garnish was the biggest contributor to the drink's aroma, and I think went well with the vegetal notes from the mezcal. The mezcal also contributed its smoke of course. Between the lemon and the sherry, the drink was actually quite dry, and because of the dryness and the aroma, Parched Rose was the first name that popped into my head, and I needed one on short notice to submit it for TDN.
