El Coronel

October 09, 2015

Inspired by a cocktail we tried at Trick Dog in San Francisco, the El Coronel combines smoky mezcal with fresh lime, apple cider, honey and mustard powder to create an intriguing cocktail that's strangely addictive.

You may be thinking, "mustard powder in a cocktail?" but trust us on this one. Mustard may seem like a wild card, but it adds a completely unique spicy element to this recipe. Get adventurous and give it a try this weekend!
