oaxacan punch

1 1/2 oz Del Maguey Mezcal Vida
1/2 oz Kronan Swedish Punsch
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a rocks glass, top with ice, and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
Two Thursdays ago, we stopped into the Citizen Public House to welcome back Sean Frederick to his old home. For one of our drinks, I asked Sean for the Oaxacan Punch created by bartender Patrick Clark. Pat was there, and he mentioned that he was rather happy with the drink's balance and later found some similarities with my Tainted Love after he created it. The Oaxacan Punch shared a grapefruit aroma that led into a rich lime sip. Next, the swallow offered smoky mezcal and complex notes from the Swedish Punsch including tea tannins, and things ended with a cinnamon finish.
