History

I became inspired by the John Wood in William Boothby's 1934 World Drinks and How to Mix Them that I had made years ago and decided to riff on it. The original was whisk(e)y and lemon, and the kümmel made me think of mezcal for the liqueur pairs rather well with agave. I also changed the citrus to lime and dubbed this one the Juan Madera.
