Why not drink away your fears with a Mezcal cocktail created specifically for the world’s implosion by PDT‘s managing partner and mixologist extraordinaire, Jim Meehan. This smooth drink is made with small-batch Sambra mezcal and finished off with lime, agave and bit of oregano. So cross your fingers, pray for tomorrow, and drink up.
