Blackberry Porterdog

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

Blackberries and mezcal are a natural match—the sweet-tart berry has a punchy flavor that can stand up to mezcal’s bold smokiness. Adding dark, malty porter into the mix isn’t as obvious, but we promise, the result is complete flavor synergy. Porter’s bitter chocolate flavor compliments toasty mezcal, which is often paired with dark chocolate in Mexico. While the mezcal, blackberries, lime juice and agave nectar make a delicious frozen cocktail on their own, turning it into a Bulldog by dunking a full bottle of porter into the drink takes it to the next level of awesomeness.
