This weekend’s great craft cocktails on utsandiego.com

THE I.B. SUNSET

At El Take it Easy,

If anyone calls you a mezcal snob at this gastrocantina in North Park, they’re not kidding! You’ve been showing off all night, describing how this agave-plant alcohol fills the lungs like campfire, sighs down the back of the throat. And just when you’re impressing everyone with your extensive spirits knowledge, you order one of El Take It Easy’s off-menu specials: theĀ  I.B. Sunset. It’s a dry drink, made with Reposado mezcal, sweet vermouth, Cherry Heering liqueur, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. “Sweet smokiness in my tummy!” You say, sounding every bit the cocktail connoisseur. Get it with a pork belly taco.
