The Smoked Tea Sour is a cocktail built on the earthy and smoky flavors of Mezcal. Lapsang Souchong tea, a smoked black tea from China, infused in a simple syrup, further enhances the natural characteristics of Montelobos Mezcal creating a deeply smoky yet delightfully light and refreshing cocktail.
Remember, great cocktails start with measuring responsibly.
