1/2 oz Mezcal (Mezcal Union)
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a stripe (4 dots) of Peychaud's Bitters across the top.
Two Thursdays ago, I ventured back into Death & Co.'s Welcome Home book where I spied the agave Clover Club riff called the Love Bug. The drink was crafted by Sam Penton in 2019, and he dubbed the it after the nickname for his partner. In the glass, the Love Bug proffered a cherry-anise and smokey agave nose. Next, a creamy lime, berry, and pineapple sip flowed into agave, smoke, and raspberry flavors on the swallow.
