Bartender Says: "We like to keep things simple. Three ingredients that all come out of bottles, a beautiful piece of ice, a lemon peel. Smoke, spice, and a touch of sweetness make for a well balanced sipper." —Richard Boccato, Owner/Bartender

1/2 oz. Smith & Cross Jamaican Rum
1 1/2 oz. Fidencio Clasico Mezcal
Combine ingredients in a rocks glass, add ice, and stir briefly. Garnish with a lemon twist. (Jan Warren, 2012)
