Mission in the Rain
Named for one of Smokestack owner Dave McLean's favorite Jerry Garcia songs, this cocktail was inspired by the smells on a foggy Bay Area morning. Bring the drink to your nose and Quilty's bay leaf-steeped cordial and oregano garnish have the cumulative effect of an herbal rainforest. You'll also get subtle smokey smells and flavors from mezcal, mixed with a house made white aperitif that makes for a clean and dry finish. A bit of Rothman & Winter Apricot Liqueur adds a fruity whisper. Breathe. And drink it all in.
