road flare

1 1/2 oz Reposado Tequila (Cimarron)
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup 1:1
1/4 oz Suze Gentian Liqueur

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a fresh or dehydrated lime wheel (fresh).
Two Fridays ago, I was clicking through my open tabs of drinks to make when I came across the Road Flare from Imbibe Magazine. The recipe crafted at last Light in New York City reminded me of a Hemingway Daiquiri in structure with tequila and gentian liqueur as the base and modifier. Once prepared, the Road Flare offered an earthy and vegetal bouquet to the nose. Next, a citrussy sip with grapefruit and lime notes flowed into tequila melding into gentian flavors on the swallow.
