- 2.0 oz. Mezcal (Del Maguey Vida)
- 0.5 oz. Nixta
- 0.25 oz. Cardamaro
- dash of Miracle Mile Chocolate Chili bitters
Shake with ice and strain into glass. Garnish or accompany with a bite of chocolate.
Here I just wanted to highlight the combination of mezcal with Nixta, an elote (corn) based liqueur. I found just a bit of Cardamaro brightened it up without detracting from the central corn and agave flavors, and the bitters offer just a hint of a spicy mole.
It took me a second in writing this to remember the reason for the name, but of course it is for the corn husk. A husk in combination with a throat stinging (in a good way) spirit resulted in the Husky Voice. Might lower your octave, but it tastes so good.
