Manzanilla Sylvestre

This refreshing cocktail hails from Mezcalito in San Francisco.


  • 1 oz Mezcal
  • 1 oz Lillet Blanc
  • 1 oz Lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz citrus chamomile tea syrup
  • lemon twist


Shake all ingredients with ice then double strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Citrus- Chamomile Syrup: 

Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup hot water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce quickly and let simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and add 1-2 bags of citrus chamomile tea. Allow to steep at room temperature for 24 hours. Remove tea bags and store syrup in the fridge when not in use.
