1/2 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with a cherry.
Two Thursday ago, Andrea and I dined at Rendezvous in Cambridge. For a first drink, bartender Scott Holliday made me a recipe that he had come up with the night before with Drink's John Gertsen. They named this mezcal Red Hook variation after the Winter Hill neighborhood in Somerville where Scott, John, and we live called Magoun Square. The drink began with a mezcal nose that led into a grape sip. The smoky agave was counted by the Maraschino on the swallow.
