Travis Nass' Oaxacan Punch

​Yesterday we discussed a law before the Mexican congress that could affect farmers and distillers of artisanal tequila and mescal, as well as the bottles you can find on the shelf. Today, Rancho Pinot bartender Travis Nass shares with us a recipe that makes use of just such an endangered mescal. Make it while you're still able. 

Oaxacan Punch

The ingredients:
1 ½ oz. Ilegal Mezcal Joven
1 oz. pink grapefruit juice
1 oz. Agua de Flor de Jamaica 
¼ oz. Hum botanical spirit
Agave nectar

How to make it:
Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled shaker. Shake well and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with a grapefruit twist and sweeten to taste with agave nectar.
