Does there always have to be a story? Nah. Here’s a tasty cocktail that I named Goodnight Vienna. It’s a sort of stirred sister to the Solipsist. End of.
1.25oz / 37.5ml mezcal (of good quality – no worm).
0.75oz / 22.5ml Grand Marnier (use lesser orange liqueurs at your peril in this one).
0.5oz / 15ml Punt e Mes.
0.25oz / 7.5ml Amaro Ramazzotti (Averna would also work well).
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled champagne coupé.
Garnish with an orange twist.
