Cocktail of the Month: Gringo Peligroso

“Be careful — it goes down easy” is usually said of cocktails that are full of sugar, cream, and other booze-cloaking ingredients. Pine Bistro’s Gringo Peligroso has that dangerous drinkability, but with minimal ingredients and a liquor-forward profile. Made of Dos Hombres Mezcal, Amaro Montenegro, ginger syrup, and a squeeze of lime, the drink’s smoky mezcal flavor is neatly balanced with the amaro’s dusky bittersweet and ginger’s sharpness. The result is simple, yet sophisticated — and entirely satisfying.
