This sophisticated take on the classic Screwdriver, on the menu at Betto in New York City, substitutes smoky mescal for vodka and features a combination of orange, pineapple, and lemon juices.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ ounces Fidencio Mescal Sin Humo
  • ¾ ounce Dimmi
  • ½ ounce orange juice
  • ½ ounce pineapple juice
  • ¼ ounce lemon juice
  • ¼ ounce pineapple syrup
  • 2 drops of orange blossom water
  • Ice
  • Slice of orange, for garnish
  • Maraschino cherry, for garnish

Directions

In a mixing glass, combine all of the ingredients except for the garnishes and shake. Strain into an ice-filled double rocks glass. Garnish with a toothpick pierced with the orange and cherry.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
