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.
