There is a touch of simplicity and creativity in the Mezcal Passion cocktail that you have to love. Mezcal is not one of my favorite styles of spirit, but Sombra is one of the better I have had and this one of the best mezcal cocktails I've tasted.

The passion fruit and cucumber mellow the liquor's distinct taste, and the nectar sweetens it all up. To add to all of that, a good, spicy ginger beer is added, and you have to love any cocktail that includes that.
