1 1/2 oz Tequila (Lunazul Reposado)
1/2 oz Maraschino Liqueur (Luxardo)
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
2 dash Peychaud's Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lime wedge (wheel).
For my post-shift drink at home two Friday nights ago, I began flipping through A Spot at the Bar: Welcome to Everleigh. There, I came upon the Dovetail that was Andy Chu's 2015 riff on the Hemingway Daiquiri that he created at Everleigh, although the "dove" part me think of a Paloma thanks in part to the Dove & Daisy drink. Once prepared, the Dovetail filled the nose with agave, lime, and nutty Maraschino notes. Next, grapefruit and lime on the sip transitioned into tequila and dry cherry on the swallow with a nutty and anise finish.
