Paloma Point (Mezcal Negroni With Grapefruit) Recipe

Vicky Wasik

This refreshing, rosy-red drink has the best traits of an Americano and a Paloma, but a much more gutsy flavor than either one on its own. Pete Stanton, head bartender at Ai Fiori in New York, created this crisp and bitter, lightly savory cooler. Smoky mezcal meets a bittersweet, super-flavorful mix of Punt e Mes and Campari, brightened with some fresh grapefruit juice and a little club soda.
