Invierno Ilegal

Ilegal bartenders craft beautiful mezcal cocktail recipes. Pictured is the Invierno Ilegal, which combines cinnamon-infused Ilegal Reposado with guava syrup and fresh lime.

Add 2 sticks of Mexican cinnamon to one 750 ml bottle of Ilegal Mezcal #Reposado and let sit for 6 hours

Add 1 cup of sugar to 1 cup of guava juice. Bring to a boil and boil until sugar is dissolved. Let cool.

2 oz cinnamon-infused Ilegal Reposado

3/4 oz guava syrup

3/4 oz fresh lime

Add all ingredients to a shaker and shake vigorously until chilled and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with grated cinnamon.
