Campfire Lemonade

Campfire Lemonade

  • 1.5 oz. mezcal
  • 0.75 oz. mead
  • 0.25 oz. Pavan
  • 0.25 oz. limoncello
  • 0.25 oz. Lillet Blanc
  • dash of lemon bitters

Stir with ice and strain into glass. Garnish with toasted marshmallows.

I had received the mead as a gift and wanted to build a drink around it. I think I started with the limoncello and floral Pavan, which worked well, and then decided mezcal would make the best base. The Lillet lengthened and gave a little bitterness to the final drink.

I tried this drink out at a cocktail night, and the name Campfire Lemonade was offered up and generally agreed to by all as appropriate for the taste. Marshmallows came later, but not too late.
