Invented during his time behind the stick at Death & Co. in New York City, the Naked and Famous cocktail is a recipe Joaquín Simó calls “the bastard love child of a classic Last Word and a Paper Plane, conceived in the mountains of Oaxaca.”
¾ oz. Del Maguey Chichicapa Single Village Mezcal
¾ oz. yellow Chartreuse
¾ oz. Aperol
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
Combine all the ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a chilled coupe.
