Spicy Dead Lady

Main Spirit Mezcal
Difficulty Easy
Technique Shaken

An easy equal parts cocktail, the Spicy Dead Lady intertwines smoky Mezcal, and bittersweet Aperol. The drink is rounded off with the soft, tropical spices of Falernum and the tang of a little Lime but finishes with the heat of Hellfire Bitters.


  • 0.75 oz. 23ml Mezcal
  • 0.75 oz. 23ml Aperol
  • 0.75 oz. 23ml Velvet Falernum
  • 0.75 oz. 23ml Lime Juice
  • dash dash Hellfire Bitter
Display: oz. ml.




Shake all ingredients together in a shaker tin with ice. Strain into a Coupe glass

If you can’t get Hellfire Bitters, a thin slice of fresh habanero pepper added to the shaker tin will also add a small amount of heat
