Mezcalita

May 21, 2020

It's like a margarita, but far more interesting. A little spicy, a little citrusy, a little smokey.

Single/Firelight 750 To-Go

    • 1.5oz/7.5oz Mezcal
    • 2oz/10oz Fresh Orange Juice
    • 1oz/5oz Fresh Lime Juice
    • 0.5oz/2.5oz Agave
    • 2 Dashes/ 10 Dashes Angostura Bitters
Prepare your tumblers - On a plate add a 50/50 mixture of salt and chili pepper. Swipe a slice of lime around the rim of the tumbler, then dip the rim in at an angle to coat it. Add ice to your tumbler.

In a cocktail shaker, add ice, mezcal, orange juice, lime juice, Angostura Bitters, and agave. Shake well and strain into your tumbler. Garnish with a slice of lime.

Blood, Sweat And Cheers
Blood, Sweat And Cheers

This story should have been about the perfect cocktails for a Moab trip in April, then it was Whistler in June, then Downieville in August… This cocktail collaboration with Pivot Cycles was to be my anti-bachelor party - for the guys in our High Camp riding crew who didn’t want the traditional tomfoolery of a bachelor party - who just wanted to go somewhere epic and ride. We envisioned a much different storyline for our first promotion with Pivot, but eventually 2020, as we know it, arrived. We postponed our weddings, got refunds for our flights, and then the fear and uncertainty of our new-normal set in.

In collaboration with Breckenridge Distilling, we tested a bottle of their new Rum Cask Finish Whiskey in one of our go-to cocktails: The Blood & Sand. It calls for Scotch, but this year was all about adapting our appetite to domestic possibilities. The resulting substitution of a smokey scotch for an apple-cinnamon laced whiskey teleported this cocktail into the tiki-verse. After a hot and dusty ride, this cocktail doubled-down on our sentiment that paradise is where you take it.

She's No Doris
She's No Doris

Doris and Fred are derisive terms used by “serious” cyclists to describe, well, everyone else. This cocktail is for those who choose to ride to have fun, and pack a drink for the finish line. This collab comes straight from the folks at Pivot Cycles and the 105 proof whiskey of Breckenridge Distillers High ProofIt’s loaded with notes of caramel, almonds, and orange peel to complement the tannins in the tea used in this unique group of mixing agents. She’s No Doris is a hell of an apres-ride.
