Naked and Famous Cocktail: The Mezcal Marvel Every Woman Must Try


Ladies, there’s a sultry, smoky spirit making waves in the cocktail scene and it’s not tequila – it’s mezcal. If you’re yet to explore this enticing elixir, there’s no better introduction than the alluringly named “Naked and Famous” cocktail. Intrigued? Let’s dive in.

The Mezcal Movement: A Quick Dive

Once a lesser-known cousin of tequila, mezcal has recently stepped into the limelight, especially among us women who have a palate for the distinct. Crafted from the heart of the agave plant, it’s a drink rich in history and tradition. While tequila takes its roots from blue agave, mezcal broadens the spectrum, often leading to a smokier and more diverse flavor.

The Birth of the Naked and Famous Cocktail

The “Naked and Famous” isn’t just a flamboyant name; its concoction is equally captivating. Born in the inventive confines of New York City’s cocktail bars, this drink combines the robustness of mezcal with the sweetness and bitterness of other unique ingredients, crafting a symphony of flavors in a glass.

Crafting the Perfect Naked and Famous


  • 1 oz Mezcal
  • 1 oz Aperol
  • 1 oz Yellow Chartreuse
  • 1 oz Fresh lime juice


  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Fill the shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.
  3. Strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass.
  4. Garnish with a lime twist, if desired.

Selecting a good quality mezcal will elevate your cocktail from great to exceptional. And remember, balance is key – the smokiness of the mezcal should harmonize with the citrus and herb undertones.

Variations on the Classic

Every cocktail has its twist and turns. For a more citrusy punch, consider adding a splash of orange or grapefruit juice. Or, for a touch of sweetness, a hint of agave syrup can do wonders.

Pairing Suggestions

The smoky essence of the Naked and Famous pairs wonderfully with savory appetizers. Think grilled shrimp, guacamole, or even a spicy tuna tartare. These delights will enhance the depth of the mezcal and complement the drink’s vibrant notes.
