  An Odd Combination This cocktail caught Chris’ eye in Difford’s Guide because of its odd mix of ingredients. With Mezcal, Maraschino liqueur and lavender bitters, it just doesn’t seem like it’d work – but it really does! The cocktail is rich, smoky, aromatic and slightly sweet with a spirit focus and beautifully balanced.     Don’t let the Ingredients Dissuade you If you’re in the mood for an Old Fashioned but curious to try something different, this one might be just the ticket.

  This week’s cocktail is my favorite kind – it’s a reader submission! Sire originally sent his recipe in as a comment on our Tuaca Daiquiri recipe here , but I followed up because it sounded so good, I thought it was worthy of its own post.   “Inspired by Old Florida” “Being a Floridian”, explained Sire, “I wanted to give props to my home state via a cocktail that’s a little different. Specifically old Florida.” Known for its citrus (perhaps more in the past than today), this cocktail pays homage by incorporating just about every common citrus flavor there is. (Yes, even Grapefruit!) “Take some fresh lemon and lime juice. Then put in a little simple. Add some Belvedere Pink Gapefruit vodka and some Bombay Sapphire gin. Add a little Tuaca.”… “It gives the drink that, ‘I’m not sure what it is, but it tastes good!’ reaction.” He chose...
