THE LIV AND LEARN (IZOMBIE COCKTAIL)

In this week's iZombie, Liv invents a cocktail to reflect her melancholy birthday feelings: "One part spicy whiskey, two parts zombie tears, a dash of hot sauce." I decided to turn it into a reality. Since I'm all out of zombie tears, I substituted mezcal, and since Fireball whiskey is gross I used regular bourbon plus cinnamon instead. Enjoy!
  1. 3/4 oz bourbon
  2. 1 1/2 oz mezcal
  3. 1/4 oz simple syrup
  4. Generous pinch of cinnamon
  5. Dash of hot sauce
  6. Shake over ice and strain into a coupe glass
