1 1/2 oz Chinaco Blanco Tequila
1 oz Aperol
3/4 oz Honey Syrup (1:1)
3/4 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a grapefruit twist.
Last Wednesday, I stopped at the Independent for drinks. There, I was greeted by bartender Casey Keenan, and I asked Casey for the Earthbound. Casey commented that the recipe began with less Aperol but shifted over time; moreover, it reminded him of Lone Star Taco Bar's Chica Fácil. Once prepared, the Earthbound offered citrus oil and mineral tequila aromas. A lime, orange, and honey sip transitioned into a tequila flavor smoothed out by the honey. Finally, the drink ended with a bitter rhubarb and tart lime finish.
