surface pressure

1 oz Santa Teresa Rum
1 oz Los Vecinos Mezcal
1 oz Dubonnet Rouge
1/2 oz St. Germain

Stir with ice and strain into a Nick & Nora glass.
For my second drink from Backbar's Encanto Week menu, I opted for the Surface Pressure created by Sam Treadway. It was caption on the list as "What's Luisa hiding under the surface?", and it reminded me a little of Jamie Boudreau's La Bicyclette for some reason. On the nose, the Surface Pressure approached with a smoke aroma. Next, caramel, grape, plum, and grapefruit notes on the sip challenged the smoke, floral, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
