1 1⁄2 oz Gin (Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin)
3⁄4 oz Maraschino Liqueur, Maraska
1⁄2 oz Lime juice
2 pn Sea salt

Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into a frozen coupe glass.


Here today in SoCal the temp needle is hovering at 114 degrees F. so I decided on a riff to the Smokey Bravo.

I found the maraschino to be quite dominant at the listed proportions and ended up adding more of everything else to balance it out. The salt is a nice touch although 1 pinch was enough for me.

I can't find any information about this cocktail or the Smokey Bravo at the link (which may well have been updated) or anywhere else on the web. Am I missing something?

Using the Wayback Machine to see the recipe when this was posted, it appears that Smokey Bravo is similar, with mezcal instead of gin 3/4 oz lime, only 1 pn of salt, and is garnished with a lime wheel. It is credited to Andy McClellan of Seattle.
