Velvet Voice Cocktail Recipe
As part of our continued coverage of this year's Negroni Week, we bring you a twist on a Negroni with the Velvet Voice. This version, from Geraldine's in Austin, swaps the typical gin with mezcal. Created by Jen Keyser, she infuses the sweet vermouth with dried hibiscus flowers to give the cocktail a floral kick. Smooth, smoky and a bit bitter. Drinks really well!
1.0 oz Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
1.0 oz Campari
1.0 oz Hibiscus infused Dolin Rouge (use dried hibiscus flowers, takes 1 hour)
2 dashes Regan’s Orange Bitters
Quickly stir all ingredients. Pour over large ice cube in highball glass.
