Charred Grapefruit & Mezcal Paloma Sour

  • oz Del Maguey Chichicapa mezcal
  • oz simple syrup
  • oz club soda
  • oz egg white
  • dashes Angostura bitters

Use an open flame from your gas stove (or kitchen torch, or broiler) and a pair of tongs to char a half a grapefruit, and a few additional slices for garnish. Juice the charred half-grapefruit. Pour the mezcal, grapefruit juice, simple syrup, egg white and bitters into an empty cocktail shaker. Dry shake, then shake with ice. Strain into a coupe, then top with club soda. Garnish with a charred grapefruit slice.
