House of Blues’ B-Side makes a smoky negroni

The orchard in the name of the Orchard Negroni from the House of Blues’ new side lounge B-side is probably a reference to the apricot brandy in the recipe. But don’t be fooled. What really sets it apart from a traditional negroni is the smoky taste of mezcal.


1/2 ounce Roca Patron tequila

1/2 ounce Cryente mezcal joven

1 ounce Carpano Antica sweet vermouth

1 ounce Cynar

1/2 ounce Apricot brandy

2 dash orange bitters


Orange peel

Add all ingredients to mixing glass with ice. Stir for 20 seconds. Strain into rocks glass over ice sphere.
