Sage Ya Later

Starring Manzanilla

Stirred and spirit forward, Sage Ya Later showcases both the Manzanilla En Rama and the East India Solera for their uniquely different characteristics, as well as how wonderfully sherry pairs with mezcal. Offering bright citrus with smoke on the nose and rich in mouthfeel, this juicy cocktail has a long sherry body and finishes with delicate smoke and a lingering salinity that forces you to reach for another sip.
