Oaxacan Ice Water

Oaxacan Ice Water cocktail with mezcal and grapefruit bitters

We’re huge fans of the cocktail magic happening at the historic Hotel Congress bar in dusty Tucson, Arizona – so we were over the moon when we saw this recipe pop up in Imbibe magazine from their barman Aaron DeFeo.

Mezcal is a natural partner to grapefruit, but it’s still pretty surprising that a couple dashes of grapefruit bitters is all you need to bring such a lovely balance to the smoke.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling water) with ice, and strain into an ice-filled short glass.

Garnish with a lemon wheel (dusted in chili salt, if you’re really fancy).

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
