Medicina Latina


Medicina Latina Cocktail Recipe

The Medicina Latina is an agave version of Sam Ross' Penicillin. The Penicillin pairs a blended Scotch whisky with a smoky Islay whisky whilst the Medicina Latina pairs a blanco tequila with smoky mezcal. A simple yet delicious riff on the original modern classic cocktail. The cocktail is featured in Sasha Petraske's Regarding Cocktails.
