charlotte's web

1 1/2 oz Mezcal (Mezcal Union)
1/2 oz Falernum (1/2 oz Velvet Falernum + 1/4 oz Simple)
3/4 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 Egg White

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a dehydrated grapefruit wheel and grated black lime (omit garnishes).
Two Thursdays ago, I returned to Trevor Felch's San Francisco Cocktails and latched onto the egg white Sour called Charlotte's Web. The recipe was crafted by Wayne Longwell at Range Life, and it was named after the horror punk-themed headshop that was the building's previous tenant. Once prepared, the Charlotte's Web proffered smoke and citrus notes to the nose. Next, a creamy grapefruit and lime sip got tangled up in mezcal, grapefruit, and clove flavors on the swallow with a smoke-laden finish.
