Naked & Famous
Death & Co mixologist Joaquín Simó is the mastermind behind the Naked & Famous, one of our absolute favorite twists on the venerated Last Word template. It’s got four ingredients, but a hundred different flavors: sweet, smoky, tart, and herbal are just the beginning.
Simó’s recipe calls for yellow Chartreuse, the sweetest of the yellow herbal liqueurs. It’s difficult to recommend a substitute here, since its sweetness plays such a big part of the drink’s balance. Similarly, the bitter citrus apéritif used can really only be Aperol, since again it provides much of the drink’s sweetness.
Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into a small chilled cocktail or coupe glass.
