This mezcal-based cocktail from Portland, Oregon restaurant Toro Bravo hits all the right notes: smoky, tart, and sweet, with just the slightest hint of salt. They use Maraska maraschino for its sweet, subtle almond flavor, but you can substitute whatever brand you have on hand.
- 1 1⁄2 oz. mezcal
- 3⁄4 oz. fresh grapefruit juice
- 1⁄2 oz. fresh lime juice
- 1⁄2 oz. maraschino
- Pinch of salt
- Lime wheel, to garnish
- Combine mezcal, juices, and maraschino in a cocktail shaker filled with ice; shake vigorously and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with lime wheel.
