For guests who want a tiki-style drink but want to explore spirits beyond rum, Allison and McGee say that the mezcal version of the mai tai is a staple at Lost Lake.


2 ounces mezcal, like Banhez Joven
1 ounce lime juice and lime hull
¾ ounce orgeat, like Small Hands Foods Orgeat
½ ounce Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao
¼ ounce Demerara syrup (2 parts Demerara sugar: 1 part hot water)
Large mint bouquet, orange peel and flower, for garnish


Add all ingredients (except garnishes) to cocktail shaker with cubed ice. Shake for 5 seconds.  Pour all ingredients, unstrained, into double Old Fashioned glass, and fill with crushed ice.  Garnish with large mint bouquet, orange peel and flower.
