This cocktail is a fascinating blend of smoky and bitter with a citrus kick, showcasing a perfect balance between mezcal and amaro. The drink is underscored by a hint of sweetness from agave nectar and the freshness of lime, creating a beautifully complex sour cocktail. - 2 oz Mezcal - 1 oz Amaro (preferably a lighter variety like Amaro Montenegro for its citrusy and herbal qualities) - 0.75 oz Fresh Lime Juice - 0.5 oz Agave Nectar - A splash of club soda - Garnish: Lime wheel and a salt rim **Type of Glass: Old-Fashioned Glass** Rim the glass with salt. Then, in a shaker filled with ice, combine the mezcal, amaro, lime juice, and agave nectar. Shake well and strain into the prepared old-fashioned glass filled with fresh ice. Top with a splash of club soda and garnish with a lime wheel. **Herbal Dusk Sour** A dynamic blend that’s easy on the palate but complex enough to intrigue, featuring an accessible herbal liqueur paired with amaro. The brightness of lemon balances the herbal notes, while egg white adds a silky finish. - 1.5 oz Gin - 0.75 oz Amaro (Averna works well here for its caramel notes) - 0.75 oz Green Chartreuse - 0.75 oz Fresh Lemon Juice - 0.5 oz Simple Syrup - 1 Egg White - Garnish: Lemon twist **Type of Glass: Coupe Glass** Dry shake the egg white in a shaker to emulsify. Add the remaining ingredients and fill the shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist. **Citrus Spice Symphony** An adventurous sour cocktail that I believe you should try. It combines the unexpected heat of chili-infused vodka with the tartness of grapefruit juice and the complexity of a dark amaro. A touch of honey balances the heat and tartness, creating a multi-layered drinking experience. - 2 oz Chili-Infused Vodka (infuse vodka with dried chili peppers for 24 hours) - 0.75 oz Amaro Nonino - 1 oz Fresh Grapefruit Juice - 0.5 oz Honey Syrup (equal parts honey and water) - 0.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice - Garnish: Grapefruit twist and a small chili on the rim **Type of Glass: Martini Glass** Combine the chili-infused vodka, Amaro Nonino, grapefruit juice, honey syrup, and lime juice in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a grapefruit twist and a small chili resting on the rim for an extra kick.
