Jesse’s Own Signature Cocktail: La Sirena


  • 1 oz. Montelobos Mezcal Joven
  • 1 oz. Milagro Reposado Tequila
  • 1/2 oz. Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
  • 3/4 oz. Fresh Lime juice
  • 3/4 oz. Orgeat (Almond Syrup)

Preparation: Combine all ingredients in a shaker tin and shake well with ice. Strain into a Collins glass and fill with crushed ice. Garnish with fresh mint, and top with Blue Curacao. Smile.

La Sirena is a refreshing sipper perfect for the summertime heat. It’s light, yet complex and easy to drink. Plus, it’s a great drink to covert even the most skeptical non-mezcal drinker.
