  • 60ml tequila blanco
  • 22.5ml lime juice
  • 11ml honey syrup (3:1)
  • 11ml ginger syrup
  • 5ml mezcal
No. of Servings:


Candied ginger


  1. Pour the tequila, both syrups and lime juice into a cocktail shaker.

  2. Add ice and shake until chilled.

  3. Strain into a rocks glass with ice.

  4. Add a float of mezcal.

  5. Garnish with candied ginger.


  1. This cocktail excels when the ginger syrup packs a bite. See our ginger syrup recipe for details on how to ensure this is the case.

  2. Mezcal brings an intense smoky aroma to this cocktail, which is part of what makes it outstanding. Gently pour it over the ice in order to create a float. Since you’re serving this with a cocktail pick, you’re facilitating a tool to stir, if the drinker wishes to do so.

  1. Marcos Tello created this cocktail in 2009 during one of Sasha Petraske’s trips to The Varnish, in Los Angeles. Petraske, the man behind the famous Milk & Honey in New York, taught Tello the Penicillin, which he later altered to use Mexican spirits instead.
