This Bitter Duchess cocktail is simple as it is refreshing and a favorite of mine to
date. The combination of Scorpion Mezcal, Orgeat (almond syrup), and Campari really give this cocktail depth and a unique flavor profile. The fresh lime juice adds the
perfect citrusy balance and will refresh and cool you down, even on the hottest
Summer day. May you imbibe well


45ml Scorpion silver mezcal
15ml Campari
20ml (a bit less than .75oz) Orgeat (almond syrup)
22.5ml Fresh lime juice
2 dash Regan's orange bitters
Glass: Coupette
Garnish: ground almond powder rim & lime wheel

Prep: Rim glass with lime, apply ground almond powder and add lime wheel. Combine all ingredients into a shaker cup with 4-5 icecubes. Shake generously, strain into Coupette. Sip, savor and enjoy!
