3⁄4 oz Mezcal
3⁄4 oz Rhum Agricole
1⁄2 oz Suze
1⁄2 oz Aperol
1⁄2 oz Lime juice
1 twst Grapefruit peel (As garnish)

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with grapefruit oil from a twist.


I became inspired by Attaboy-Nashville's Palm Sunday while writing it up on the blog, and I extracted its Suze-Aperol combination and took it in a citrus direction akin to the Square Root. For the spirit, I went with the quirky combination of mezcal and rhum agricole that I have utilized before such as in the All of Freud's Beautiful Women. For a name, Sam Ross' Too Soon? made me think of another question – that being Peggy Lee's song Is That All There Is?
