Leather HammockAdapted from a recipe by Chad Larson, Barrio Lowertown, St. Paul, MN.

“A riff on a classic Blood and Sand, the mezcal gives a really nice smokey taste along with the snap of the spirit.” Chad Larson.

30 ml (1 oz) Illegal mezcal reposado

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Cocchi Vermouth di Torino

10 ml (.33 oz) Luxardo maraschino liqueur

22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh orange juice

Brandied cherries, as garnish

1 orange peel ribbon, as garnish

Shake vigorously over ice and double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add the garnishes.

gaz sez: This drink will wake you up with a shock. It could be a Corpse Reviver as much as it’s a riff on the Blood and Sand. It makes for a good brunch drink, too, especially if you’re having a smoked salmon omelet or similar.
