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.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
