Monterey Bay

Old Father Time checked, so there’d be no doubt,
Called on the north wind to come on out,
Then cupped his hands, so proudly to shout,
“La-de-da, de-da-de-dum, ’tis Autumn!”
—Henry Nemo, ’Tis Autumn

A big, smoky one full of fruit for the turning of the season. Fall makes me all dreamy-eyed, like I don’t want to do anything but sit around and watch the sky and the stuff floating inside my head. It’s the time in Northern California everybody seems to like best.

Monterey Bay

  • 1/2 oz crème de framboise
  • 1/2 oz crème de cassis
  • 1/4 oz mezcal
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 2 oz soda, or to taste
Combine all but soda and shake with ice. Top with soda and stir gently. Lemon wheel.
