Welcome to Boozinette. This is the Blond Ambition.

  • 2 oz mezcal
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • 1/2 oz rosemary syrup
  • 1/2 sweet vermouth
  • a pinch of cumin
  • 1 cherry orange flag
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary

Bring all ingredients to a boil until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, fine strain, let cool, and refrigerate.

Pour all liquid ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake with zealous intent for 10-12 seconds. Strain into a collins glass over ice. Garnish with a cherry orange flag and make a scene when you seize your dreams.
