Saladito Perez Style – my pick for a Father’s Day craft cocktail

1665aa6e732115444df7e83500693c71This is tied with the Crimson Birdcage for the best cocktails I’ve ever had, or at least ever made…

2 ounces mezcal (not rotgut but needn’t be super high-end sippin’ whiskey–maybe $30-35 a bottle?)
1 ounce honey syrup (add one part hot water to three parts honey, stir until dissolved, chill)
1 part fresh lime juice

Shake over ice, strain into coupé, dust with: 1 part finely ground sea salt plus 1 part ground cayenne
