Dark November evenings at home call for a little extra indulgence, it’s just a fact. Lucky for you, the master bartenders at Le Bar du Bristol have offered up the recipe for their cocktail of the moment: le Mijo. Blending the smoky flavour of Mezcal with a touch of pumpkin and butter caramel, this tasty tipple is 2020’s essential pre-Thanksgiving dinner drink. You have a few weeks to perfect it, so light some candles, turn on some music and get shaking!
Here’s how it’s made…
4 cl of white Don Julio tequila
1 cl of Mezcal
2 cl of salted butter caramel syrup
1 cl of fresh pumpkin mash
2 cl of fresh lemon juice
2 cl of cane sugar syrup
3 cl of fresh blood orange mash
Mix all of the ingredients in a shaker with crushed ice. Pour over ice in your favourite glass. Add a cinnamon stick and dehydrated fruit slices on top for a decorative garnish.
Cheers to you and yours!
