Oaxacan Negroni2

A smoky take on the classic three-ingredient Italian aperitivo using Casamigos Mezcal in place of gin. Mezcal imbues earthy, smoky and savory notes to this cocktail, making it a perfect match for the botanical and citrus-forward qualities of vermouth and bitters.

Seville Marmalade Negroni


  • 1 oz. Casamigos Mezcal Joven
  • 1 oz. Red Italian Bitters
  • 1 oz. Sweet Vermouth
  • 2 Dashes Orange Bitters
  • Charred Grapefruit Peel Garnish


  1. Using a sharp knife and a cutting board, remove a long slice of grapefruit skin, leaving as little pith on the peel as possible and set aside.
  2. Combine ingredients in a mixing glass or cocktail shaker with ice.
  3. Stir well for 30–45 seconds and strain into a rocks glass over a large rock of fresh ice or a small scoop of ice.
  4. Twist the grapefruit peel over the drink to express the oils, then lightly char using a blow torch or match and add as garnish.
