Sother Teague, Amor y Amargo | New York, NY

The name of this drink literally means “of the grapefruit,” explains Teague. “Though it has no juice, it seems juicy,” thanks to the combo of Citron Sauvage, a grapefruit-based liqueur, Aperol and grapefruit bitters. Although Amor y Amargo serves this drink on draft, we suggest stealing the presentation of another drink served there, the Sharpie Mustache: funnel it into a glass flask, cap tightly and chill. When ready to serve, remove the cap and insert the grapefruit twist into the flask neck for extra aroma and visual impact.
