Sweet and smoky and positively scrumptious!
1 oz grapefruit juice
0.5 oz mexican marigold infused syrup (sugar, water & dried organic marigolds)
0.25 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
0.25 oz Gem & Bolt mezcal floater
Garnished with starfruit
Served over ice in an old fashioned glass with a salted rim
To prepare the marigold syrup, in a saucepan bring water and sugar to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat, add the dried marigolds and simmer for five minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool, strain.
Gently glide the wedge of a lime along the side of an old fashioned glass and then dip that into a bit of salt.
Combine 0.5 oz of the marigold syrup, the grapefruit tequila, the grapefruit juice and the lime juice into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well for 30 seconds, then strain into an old fashioned glass filled with ice. Pour a tablespoon of Mezcal onto the top and garnish with a slice of starfruit.
