Division Bell

Division Bell cocktail with mezcal, Aperol, maraschino, and lime juice

The Division Bell is everything we want from a mezcal sour: tart, sweet, smoky, and lip-smackingly delicious. The recipe calls for Aperol, one of the sweetest and most accessible bitter citrus apéritif on the market. We have a feeling that the more bitter options – Campari and its ilk – would probably overpower the delicate balance of flavors.

The drink is named for the Pink Floyd album that creator Phil Ward listened to while devising the cocktail menu for Mayahuel, a San Francisco restaurant.
