Division Bell

Adapted from a recipe by Philip Ward, Mayahuel, New York City.

30 ml (1 oz) Del Maguey Mezcal San Luisdel Rio

22.5 ml ( .75 oz) Aperol

15 ml (.5 oz) Luxardo maraschino liqueur

22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh lime juice

1 grapefruit twist

Shake over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Squeeze the twist over the drink, then discard.

gaz sez:  Okay, so I love Phil Ward and I can’t resist including one of his recipes in this batch.  Sue me, already.  Then make this cocktail and tell me it ain’t absolutely fabulous.  The balance is perfect, every ingredient plays a discernable role, and the grapefruit twist caps it off beautifully.
