Tomorrow I leave for a week in Oaxaca, Mexico. As you may know, Oaxaca is ground zero for mezcal, and I'll be spending a great deal of time visiting palenques and learning about mezcal production (this is, after all, a USBGNY trip). For those of you who aren't joining me on the trip, you can play along at home, and make yourself a Division Bell (or go to Mayahuel and have one there).
1 oz Del Maguey San Luis Del Rio mezcal
3/4 oz. Aperol
3/4 oz. Maraska or 1/2 oz. Luxardo (Maraschino)
3/4 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
Shake well with ice, strain into a cocktail glass. Twist and squeeze a grapefruit peel over the glass. Rub the rim of the glass with the peel, then discard it.
