“I love how sherry, tequila and grapefruit play together. I made this to showcase that dynamic and to make a juicy drink with no juice…and a refreshing drink that is also dry. Basically, a liquid version of rolling through fresh-cut grass.” Christopher Day.

45 ml (1.5 oz) Tapatio Blanco tequila

15 ml (.5 oz) Salers Gentian Liqueur

15 ml (.5 oz) Lustau Manzanilla SherryBending Blades - Copy

15 ml (.5 oz) Giffard Pamplemousse Rose

1 lemon twist, as an aromatic garnish.

Stir over cracked ice and strain into a chilled coupe.  Express lemon oils onto the top of the drink and discard the twist.

gaz sez:   I loves me some pamplemousse, I does, and Christopher puts this fabulous pink-grapefruit liqueur to very good use in this drink.  I urge you to try this cocktail—I think you might consider offering it to your guests as a very interesting apéritif in the near future.
