A Perfect Gents Cocktail Share

Mix yourself up this popular men's go-to recipe from The Pullman.

If you’re looking for a smoky drink but you’re tired of relying on whiskey to do the job, The Pullman has you covered with this refreshing yet smoky mezcal-based cocktail. Glenwood Springs’ American eatery, The Pullman, is always exploring new and imaginative ways to pair unique drinks with their top-notch food and service, and they do so without getting too complicated along the way. The Pullman’s main bar and the general manager, Franz Garcia, share the recipe for their favorite men’s go-to drink, the Smoky Haze, saying, “We always like to think outside the box, but we keep things simple and sustainable while executing it well.” With only three basic ingredients and three easy steps, anyone can make a Smoky Haze at home.

While The Pullman is a fan of Madre Mezcal, you can use any mezcal that tickles your fancy, just keep in mind: the simpler the better. It then doesn’t get simpler than adding in the simple syrup—an easy one-part water, one-part sugar ratio if you want to make it from home sustainably—and some lime juice. And finally, the garnish of smoked paprika with more lime is what makes this drink so special without going over the top. Garcia notes, “I am a big Mezcal fan and what I particularly like about this drink is how simple it is to make—it is simple but unique, like The Pullman.” While the Smoky Haze started as an imaginative experiment, it has become a favorite Pullman original cocktail that you can now make at home for a guys' night, a party, or a relaxing night in.

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz Mezcal 
  • 1 oz Simple Syrup
  • Pressed Lime Juice
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Lime Wedge

Directions:

  1. Add mezcal, simple syrup, and lime juice into a cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake with ice, then strain and pour over a large ice cube.
  3. Garnish with smoked paprika and a lime wedge.
