Naked and Famous Cocktail


We often choose thematically appropriate cocktails for special family events. And when I say "special events" I mean, excuses for my family to get together to eat amazing food and drink entirely too much. For the Oscars last night, Michelle's husband, Stu, made us the cocktail Naked and Famous, which is fresh, sweet, smokey and bitter.

It's absolutely delicious and easy to make as it calls for equal parts of four ingredients: mescal, Aperol, lime juice and yellow Chartreuse. If you don't have yellow Chartreuse in your bar yet, it's time to go out and get it. This cocktail alone is worth it.

Naked and Famous Cocktail 

  • 3/4 ounce Mezcal
  • 3/4 ounce yellow Chartreuse
  • 3/4 ounce Aperol
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the ingredients. Shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe.
