A variation on Game Set Match.
2 oz Smoky Mezcal

Finally, a cocktail worthy of the name…

So easy, and so delicious…

2 ounces, bottled-in-bond bourbon (Evan Williams is what I use)
.5 ounces Benedictine
Heat in the microwave for 10-15 seconds (at the max!)
Easy, tasty shot with a horrible name. (Don’t ask.)
Like PBJ ice cream … made out of whiskey.

.5 oz Haering Cherry Liquour or Luxardo Cherry Liquor
Pour the Skrewball™ into the shot. Gently add the cherry liquor and it settles on the bottom of the glass. Done!
My personal favorite when I have a cold
2 oz. Fernet Branca
1 Ricola™ Original Herb cough drop
- Place the Ricola™ Original Herb cough drop in an aperitif glass
- Fill with Fernet Branca
Conversely, you can suck on a Ricola™ Original Herb cough drop while sipping Fernet Branca
