Most pink drinks skew sweet, so this smoky Mezcal-based Diva Cocktail is a refreshing respite. Bonus: $1 from each drink sold at the Silversmith Hotel’s Adamus bar will benefit the Chicagoland Susan G. Komen foundation.

  • 2 dashes cranberry bitters
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • ½ ounce Combier Liqueur d’Orange
  • 1½ ounces fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1½ ounces Mezcal Vago
  • Lemon peel, for garnish

Combine bitters, syrup, Combier Liqueur, grapefruit juice and Mezcal in a shaker tin filled with ice. Shake well, then strain into a martini glass and garnish with a lemon peel.
