Mezcal and creamy horchata are a match made for sipping by the warmth of a cozy fire, just as the Fireside’s name suggests. It’s the creation of Brandon Matzek, a San Diego-based food writer and photographer. Matzek calls for only a bit of mezcal to bring a touch of smoke alongside an aged tequila, bolstered by the warm spice of cinnamon syrup and walnut bitters.



Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
