Floral Strawberry Mezcal Smash

"'Tis the season: I have the sweetest, most flavorful strawberries at the moment, so you know that some are destined to end up in a cocktail. Mezcal was my spirit of choice, and since I love floral flavors with mezcal, I also added some Italicus, plus a little of the super floral and slightly bitter SIlvestre honey from @beeseasonalhoney ... The end result was a floral and slightly smoky celebration of strawberries, and boy howdy was it luscious.⁣"
