all she wrote

1 1/2 oz Punt e Mes
3/4 oz Dry Vermouth
1/4 oz Maraschino (Luxardo)
1/8 oz Grapefruit Liqueur (St. Elder)
2 dash Peychaud's Bitters

Build in a rocks glass, add a large ice cube, stir, and garnish with a pinch of sea salt.
Two Wednesdays, I sifted through my cocktail book library and found Maggie Hoffman's Batch Cocktails. There, the All She Wrote by Jeremy Simpson at Bestia in Los Angeles seemed like an intriguing low proof number, and I adapted it from a batch to a single serving recipe. In the glass, it showcased a grape and cherry bouquet. Next, grape and grapefruit on the sip conjured up grape, herbal, cherry, and anise flavors on the swallow.
