Beer and a Smoke

Today is the inaugural British Beer Day and we’re celebrating with a foxy twist on the Beer and a Smoke recipe from Jim Meehan’s PDT recipe book:

  1. Stir 30ml mezcal, 20ml lime juice, a dash of celery bitters and four dashes of Tabasco, or hot sauce with cubed ice for thirty seconds.
  2. Strain into a chilled Collins glass with a salted rim.
  3. Top with 180ml of IPA* and garnish with grated citrus zest.

* The IPA I’m using is Meantime IPA – what could be more British?
