jet setter

1 oz El Buho Mezcal
3/4 oz Giffard Pamplemousse Liqueur
3/4 oz Amaro Nonino
1/2 oz Lime Juice
3 drop Saline (1 part salt:4 part water)

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with grapefruit oil from a twist.

Two Wednesdays ago, I stopped by Backbar and found a seat in front of Kat Lamper. For a first drink, I was intrigued by the Jet Setter on the menu that was described as "Tart, to the point, and pleasantly pushes the smoky mezcal to the back of the plane." Kat described how bartender Lindsay Adams was inspired by the Naked & Famous and the Paper Plane, and she mashed them together. After being pleased with the results, Kat and Lindsay came up with the name "Naked on a Plane," but that was shot down by manager Sam Treadway.
The Jet Setter began its flight with a grapefruit aroma that soared into a lime, grapefruit, and orange-flavored sip. Next, the drink descended into smoky mezcal, grapefruit, and herbal notes on the swallow.
