Passionate Pepper Cocktail

Trey Foshee loves good mezcal, a spirit distilled from roasted agave (the same succulent plant that's used to make tequila). At Foshee's restaurant, George's at the Cove, bartender Frank Thaheld uses mezcal in this potent jalapeño-spiked drink, which he partially sweetens with passion fruit puree.
