tres amigos

1 1/2 oz Mezcal (Mezcal Union)
1/2 oz Grapefruit Liqueur (St. Elder)
1/2 oz Cynar
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Demerara Syrup

Shake with ice, pour into an old fashioned glass, and garnish with a mint sprig.
Two Mondays ago, I was perusing the 2020 Community Cocktails book when I spotted the Tres Amigos created by Kelsey Larsen at Pablo y Pablo in Seattle. This Mezcal Margarita of sorts paired Cynar and grapefruit liqueur as the sweetener, and while I have tried grapefruit liqueur with other amaro, I have not had a recipe that matched it with Cynar. Once prepared, the Tres Amigos donated a mint over grapefruit and mezcal aroma. Next, lime and caramel mingled on the sip, and the swallow danced through with mezcal, funky herbal, and grapefruit flavors.
