Spring is here and the farmer’s markets are opening which is such an exciting sign that summer is just around the corner. I love asparagus and after 4 years of attempting to grow it with no success, I appreciate the uniqueness of this green vegetable even more.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I am excited to share my newest favorite tequila-based cocktail, the Mezcal Negroni. Negronis are a classic Italian cocktail that usually consist of gin, Campari and vermouth. I am all for a strong cocktail so I love this story. And I love this take on the classic Negroni. Mezcal offers a smoky note to the bitterness of the Campari. It is truly one of my favorite patio sippers.
