Have you ever tried an umami mezcal cocktail? Summer is right around the corner so let's make a summer cocktail! Smoky Worm is a cocktail that I made for the 3-course cocktail menu called the Unknown Taste, which is served every Thursday in a cocktail bar I work at. The guest enjoy 3 craft cocktails paired with a complimentary snack. In the video, you will learn how to make a drink that is clear and full of fruity flavors at the same time. It contains Irish whiskey and a smoky mezcal (hence the cocktail's name). And it wouldn't be an Unknown Taste cocktail without a »match made in heaven« snack that you need to try before the summer is over.
· 100 ml (3 1/3 oz) bottled Smoky Worm
· ice cube dipped in soy sauce
Bottled Smoky Worm

Blend all the ingredients and leave it in the fridge for up to 12 hours. After that, filter it through a cheesecloth or a muslin fabric at least twice, to get a clear liquid. After filtration bottle it and store it in the fridge for up to a month.
