Seeing Candide at the Royal Swedish Opera a few weeks ago was fantastic. It’s a comic opera, and there was no shortage of funny costumes and surprising lyrics.⁠

But we just couldn’t resist bringing a flask cocktail. This one by Chris Hannah is absolutely delicious, and it worked well as a pre-batched drink. We’ve always liked the combination of tequila and mezcal, and in here the added amaro and coffee tones really complement the whole experience.⁠

The glass? It’s collapsable and it fits anywhere. Vintage barware are the best aren’t they!⁠
