Relationships have never been simple, even in the 18th century when marriages were arranged and gender roles enforced. As Madame de Rosemonde laments in the period drama Dangerous Liaisons: “Those who are most worthy of love are never made happy by it.” Regardless whether there’s truth to her statement, Paz Taqueria’s Dangerous Liaison is potent enough to make lovers feel content, at least in the moment.
To start your own Liaison, muddle half a fresh orange in a standard mixer. Top with 11⁄4 oz. bourbon and equal parts tequila, Aperol and lemon-lime juice (3⁄4 oz. each). Add ice and shake. Single-strain to retain the orange pulp. Pour the sherbet-colored mixture into a chilled coupe glass – rumored to be originally modeled after Marie Antoinette’s bosom – and garnish with rosemary.
