Inspired by the classic Blood & Sand cocktail, this drink uses mezcal for its smoky flavor, which marries well with the grapefruit juice.
- 1 ounce mezcal (ECC recommends Del Maguey Crema de Mezcal)
- 1 ounce Cherry Heering
- 1 ounce sweet vermouth
- 1 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
- Orange peel
In a cocktail shaker, combine the first four ingredients with ice. Shake well, and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Squeeze the orange peel over the top to release its oils, then discard.
