Oaxacan Sunrise

This Version of the Oaxacan Sunrise Cocktail does not have the typical orange juice and grenadine you would find in the original. Instead, we use ginger syrup and lime juice to build a cocktail with some smokey spices from the Mezcal. The bitters give the Oaxacan Sunrise Cocktail greater depth of flavour and a stunning layer of colour on top of the crushed ice.
