The Mezcal Martinez is a riff on the classic Martinez cocktail. Richard Elgar created it and first published it in the Difford’s Guide.

It provides a smokey flavor from the Mezcal but is very well balanced from the sweet vermouth. The Cynar and Luxardo add a subtle but fantastic depth to the drink.

I highly recommend this cocktail for someone who isn’t sure about or has tried Mezcal.
