Mezcal and Apple Juice?? (Nuena Tardes)

First things first, I don’t think Nuena Tardes is the best name for this drink. Not a huuuge deal, just saying I would have given this smooth easy drinking cocktail a better name! I first came across the recipe in “ The Book of Dangerous Cocktails” by Dylan March and Jennifer Boudinot. I have experimented with the recipe since then to add my own spin, however this recipe is for the original.

What to Expect

The Nuena Tardes is a fairly simple recipe. It uses only one type of spirit (mezcal), with fresh lemon juice and apple juice or cider. When made correctly it will taste like a smooth slightly tart apple juice for adults. This cocktail is VERY easy to drink in my opinion! With that being said let’s dive into the recipe.
