Rising Sun

Recipe: Rising Sun (serves one)

  • 1 1/2 oz. mezcal
  • 3/4 oz. fresh pink grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. maraschino liqueur
  • pinch of salt
  • Lime wheel for garnish

Shake ingredients vigorously with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into glass, and garnish with lime wheel.


Since we enjoyed the smoky-citrus flavor of the Mezcal Margarita from our last post so much, we went hunting for other promising mezcal cocktails. We found this yummy recipe on saveur.com. It follows the same pattern as the margarita, but has grapefruit juice as well as lime, and gets its sweetness from cherry-based maraschino liqueur rather than Cointreau.
