1 1/2 oz Milagro Silver Tequila
1 oz Combier Orange Liqueur
1/2 oz Aperol
3/4 oz Lime Juice
3 inch swath Grapefruit Peel
Shake with ice and strain into a salt-rimmed Collins glass filled with ice. Top with ~2 oz soda water and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
The final drink that I had at No. 9 Park was Tyler Wang's Dove & Daisy. Tyler described it as a combination of a Paloma and a Margarita which are the Spanish words for dove and daisy, respectively. Once mixed, the grapefruit twist aroma mingled with the tequila notes on the nose. A carbonated orange, lime, and Aperol sip gave an almost grapefruit-like taste, and the tequila rounded out the swallow.
The euphemisms are getting a bit stale, suffice to say: four people in Boston -- two of whom are much more prolific writers than the other two (including the originator of this blog, who has no excuse apart from laziness) -- who drink and tell.
