let's go crazy

1 oz El Bujo Mezcal
1 oz Reposado Tequila
1/2 oz Bonal Gentiane-Quina
1/4 oz Crème de Cacao
1/4 oz Amontillado Sherry

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist (discarded here).
For my next drink, I narrowed down their Instagrammed drinks of the day from the past two weeks and asked bartender Luc Thiers which of the three that I should have. Luc picked out Kobie Ali's Let's Go Crazy from my short list; Kobie making a Prince-inspired drink name is not all that surprising since he has been the lead singer of the Prince tribute band Lovesexy for quite a few years now. Once prepared, the Let's Go Crazy shared orange oil and chocolate aromas. Grape on the sip from the Bonal and sherry led into smoky agave and bitter chocolate on the swallow.
