mildred pierce

3/4 oz Mezcal (Peloton de la Muerte)
3/4 oz Aperol
3/4 oz Grapefruit Liqueur (St. Elder)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a Nick & Nora glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Tuesdays ago, I reached for Kara Newman's Shake Stir Sip book and spotted the Mildred Pierce named after the 1945 movie or perhaps the 1991 Sonic Youth tribute song. This lighter and citrussy equal parts number was crafted by Abigail Gullo at Compere Lapin in New Orleans, and it began with a lemon, grapefruit, and smoke aroma. Next, orange, lemon, and grapefruit notes on the sip fell into grapefruit and vegetal flavors on the swallow with an orange and smoke finish.
