  • 1.5 oz Mezcal
  • 2 oz Blanco Tequila
  • 4 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1.5 oz Freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 2 oz Orgeat Syrup
  • 3 oz Heavy Cream
  • 4 Sage leaves For Garnish


  1. Grab two spouted containers that will be large enough to fit the volumes mentioned above. A mixing glass can work here. In one mixing glass, add all ingredients EXCEPT the heavy cream. Give this a stir.

  2. In a separate spouted container (or bowl), add your cream (room temp or chilled is acceptable) and than slowly pour in your cocktail mixture INTO the cream. Do not stir. Cover and place into fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours.

  3. Grab a Fine Mesh Sieve, Coffee Filter and new bowl. Place the Coffee Filter into the sieve and pour the cocktail mixture. This will take some time, so let it filter through without having to hold the vessel the entire time. Keep adding to the filter until you are done.

  4. To enjoy the cocktail, serve over 1 large ice cube and garnish with sage. The clarified cocktail can be left in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
