Tip Me

When Doves Cry


  • 2 oz. Mezcal (I prefer to use El Buho)
  • 3/4 oz. Dry Curaçao
  • 2 oz. Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
  • 1 wedge of fresh grapefruit
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice


Muddle your grapefruit in juices, take a shot(optional), add mezcal, curaçao, ice, and shake! Rim with salt if ya nasty! 

A simple drink, for simple times. A drink that we, at my home away from home, have donned "The Buloma" - a great riff on a classic!

Cheers! xoxo
