Wet Bar Wednesday – PCH

While perusing my roomie’s copy of Los Angeles Magazine last week in Vegas, I came across this drink recipe that sounds amazing.  I haven’t tried it yet, but I plan on doing so soon!

Mezcal is a cousin to tequila.  More specifically, tequila is a very specific sub-species of mezcal, made from a very specific agave plant. Mezcal is not traditionally part of cocktails (not in Mexico, at least), but rather is consumed straight.  If you’ve heard the stories about tequila bottles with a worm in the bottom, what they more correctly refer to is mezcal.  

The PCH (Pacific Coast Highway)

  • 1 part (1.5 oz) vodka
  • 1/2 part (3/4 oz) pineapple juice
  • 1/3 part (1/2 oz) lemon juice
  • 1/3 part (1/2 oz) mezcal
  • 1/3 part (1/2 oz) elderflower liqueur  (like St.-Germain)
  • 1/6 part (1/4 oz) simple syrup

Combine all ingredients & shake with ice.  Pour into a glass over ice and add a few drops of Angostura bitters to the top.  Enjoy!
