DIRECTIONS
1. Muddle fruit, sugar and bitters in an old fashioned tumbler (short cocktail glass).
2. Add mezcal and ice, stir several times, garnish with orange slice and serve.

* Pit sour Colorado cherries, soak them in simple syrup and Licor 43 for a month or substitute high-end bar cherries, like Luxardo or something similar. Maraschino cherries are not preferred but can be used and will change the flavor profile of the drink.
