Cocktail of the week: Uno Mas’ Tropic like it’s hot – recipe

We opened in February 2020, and were going great guns until, all of 37 days later, we had to shut when the UK went into lockdown. We’ve only just reopened, so here’s one to sip on while looking forward to a better summer in 2021.

Tropic like it’s hot
Serves 1

30ml mezcal – I use Zignum Espadin Reposado
12½ml Campari
12½ml triple sec
50ml pineapple juice (ideally fresh)
15ml fresh lime juice
12½ml agave syrup
1 orange twist, to garnish

Put all the liquid ingredients in a shaker, add ice and shake well. Remove and discard the ice, shake again, then fine strain into a coupe or martini glass. Garnish with the orange twist and serve (I don’t serve this over ice, but if you prefer a more diluted drink, add a couple of ice cubes to the glass).
