I was tasked at work (La Brasa in Somerville) to create a mezcal Paloma-inspired drink served in a coupe. Since the Paloma means dove, a named this after a pretty and once sacred bird in Mexico.
1 12 oz Mezcal
34 oz Grapefruit juice
12 oz Lime juice
38 oz Campari
38 oz Cinnamon syrup
1 ds Peychaud's Bitters
Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a grapefruit twist or lime wheel.
I was inspired by Don's Mix (grapefruit + cinnamon) and how well Campari works with cinnamon as well as grapefruit. The 3/8 oz measurements might seem odd, but the concept was to create a grapefruit-Campari-cinnamon syrup cordial so the drink build would be 1.5, 1.5, 0.5, 1 dash.
Created for the La Brasa menu winter menu.
