The Maximilian Affair created by Misty Kalkofen, Boston, is a fantastic drink for mezcal lovers (found in The Cocktail Chronicles by Paul Clarke).
1 oz. Mezcal, 1 oz. Elderflower Liqueur, 1/2 oz. Punt e Mes, 1/4 oz. Lemon Juice, 1 dash Celery Bitters (optional, my choice), garnish: Lemon Twist
Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.
I love the combination of earthy mezcal, sensual elderflower liqueur, sweet vermouth and the herbal celery bitters.
