This nice nod to the season was created by Mary Tate Sward of Venable and would be great for your holiday party (though we’d sip it year-round!). The mezcal adds a mild smokiness, and the Krupnikas honey liqueur incorporates those classic fall flavors that we all look forward to this time of year.

Light Weight Jacket

1 1⁄2 oz. mezcal (preferably Monte Alban)
3⁄4 oz. Brothers Vilgalys Krupnikas (made in Durham!)
1 1⁄2 oz. Looza Pear Nectar (if you’ve got time and a juicer, try some fresh pear juice)
1⁄4 oz. fresh lime juice
Cinnamon stick for garnish

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain over fresh ice in a rocks glass. Use a microplane to shave a touch of fresh cinnamon on top. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
