El Sueño

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Inspired by Katie Stipe’s modern classic, the Siesta, this take on a Paloma mixes the usual tequila and grapefruit soda with bittersweet Campari for a refreshingly quaffable summer sipper. Once it inevitably becomes your go-to aperitif, try swapping out the Campari for bolder, fruitier amari alternatives like Cappelletti.
