Rising Sun

Rising Sun cocktail with mezcal, grapefruit juice, lime juice, maraschino, and salt

The Rising Sun is a deliciously tart, smoky mezcal cocktail from Toro Bravo, a restaurant in Portland, Oregon. Mezcal cocktails can sometimes be too intensely smoky, but the Rising Sun’s combo of bright citrus and nutty, sweet maraschino tames the smoke.

Toro Bravo uses Maraska maraschino, instead of the more-common Luxardo brand. This was a good call; Maraska lacks the super-funky undertones of Luxardo, and its almond-forward flavor pairs well with agave and grapefruit.
