• 30ml tequila blanco
  • 30ml mezcal
  • 22ml lime juice
  • 22ml honey syrup (3:1)
  • Scant ½ teaspoon Angostura bitters
  • A grapefruit peel, for a regal shake
No. of Servings:




  1. Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.

  2. Shake until chilled.

  3. Strain into a coupe.


  1. This drink calls for a Regal shake: Adding the grapefruit peel into the mixer before shaking. This method adds elements of the fruit to a drink without having to add juice.

  2. The oils in grapefruit peel help brighten a cocktail, and they are particularly helpful in reducing sweetness. This cocktail, which calls for honey, is a great example in which a Regal shake can help balance the drink. 

  3. Deceptively simple but wonderfully complex. This is a great, balanced cocktail that serves as an introduction to mezcal. It’s also fantastic for those who want to use their bottle of tequila beyond a margarita!

  1. Created by Ben Long for a menu for Sasha Petraske, of Milk & Honey fame. Petraske wasn’t a big fan of mezcal, as he thought it easily overpowered a drink. Long took up the challenge to create a mezcal cocktail that Petraske would like and ended up with this recipe.

  2. Named after Oaxaca, the Mexican state that produces mezcal.
