How to Make the Medicina de Mezcal, a Cocktail the Doctor Ordered 4 U

Welcome to Boozinette. This is the Medicina de Mezcal.

  • 2 oz mezcal
  • 1/2 oz ginger juice
  • 3/4 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz honey syrup
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1 part honey bear
  • 2 parts boiling water

Pour all ingredients into a container that can handle boiling water. Let cool and refrigerate. Use in any beverage for immediate comfort in an uncomfortable world.


Pour all liquid ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake like a convalescent for 10-12 seconds. Fine strain into a lowball over ice. Garnish with a lime wedge and take twice daily until symptoms improve.
