Scorpion Reef Cocktail

Scorpion Reef

The Scorpion Reef Cocktail was initially concocted by bartender Marshall Davis at the Gallo Pelón Mezcaleria in Raleigh, North Carolina. While he was in the process of making a smoked pineapple flan for the dessert menu, the idea for this cocktail came to him at the same time. It has a hint of smokiness to it, along with flavours reminiscent of the tropics, such as pineapple and lemon, which are brought together by the chocolate and Angostura Bitters. We’d love to hear your feedback after you’ve had a chance to sample the Scorpion Reef Cocktail.
