thou shall not be named

1 1/2 oz Reposado Tequila (Cimarron)
1/2 oz Mezcal (Fidencio)
1/2 oz Amaro Sfumato
1/2 oz Cocchi Americano
1/2 oz Cocchi Vermouth di Torino

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Tuesdays ago, I spied an interesting recipe on Punch Drinks called Thou Shall Not Be Named. The drink was crafted by bartender Alicia Perry in San Diego and was inspired by the Boulevardier. Since it reminded me of the Rodeo Ghost, I was game to try it out. Once prepared, it offered up a lemon, roasty, vegetal, and smoke bouquet to the nose. Next, grape and roast notes on the sip flowed into vegetal, smoke, and bitter flavors on the swallow in a sharp earthy way.
