Mezcal • Dry
I Dream of Greenie

Nearly every ingredient in this smoky-savory cocktail from L.A.’s Melrose Umbrella Co. is green: avocado, matcha green tea, lime juice—even the mezcal, which is made from the so-called “green agave.” Co-owner Zach Patterson infused avocado into an agave syrup, so the cocktail is lighter than most avocado-based drinks, but its rich green hue won’t let you forget about the silky fruit within. Blink and the tasty drink will be gone—just in time to wish up another.
