Yuzu Reverse Mezcalrita
When our good friend Lynne told us we simple had to list Pierre Ferrand's new limited edition Dry Curaçao, Yuzu Late Harvest, we were more than happy to comply.
What a bottle! Everything that makes the original so versatile and beloved, but with the flavors of Yuzu bringing out the light, floral citrusy notes that Yuzu is so well-known for.
Here we take the idea of a margarita, but swap out mezcal for tequila and reverse the proportions, so you get the full pleasure of the wonderful Yuzu Late Harvest flavor, with just a hint of smokey agave.
