MISH MISH COCKTAIL

I’ve picked up quite a few phrases from my best girlfriend Christie, but “mish mish” has to be my favorite.  First off, it is just so fun to say.  Secondly, it’s a term of endearment for cats, similar in the way we would say “here kitty, kitty.”  And thirdly, it means apricot.  Is there anything more darling than calling neighborhood cats, “little apricots”? Exactly.

So inspired by this phrase, I decided to mix up a little mish mish of my own: an apricot inspired cocktail with a little bit of bite.  The smokey mezcal and tart grapefruit bitters are lovely counter points to the apricot liqueur’s sweet roundness.  So Christie, my mish mish, here’s a mish mish cocktail for you.  Cheers!
