Mourning Doves

This Paloma at Nashville’s Pinewood Social winks at the Whiskey Sour, adding lemon alongside grapefruit as the citrusy element, as well as mix of maple and simple syrups to sweeten. It’s missing the fizziness that usually lightens a Paloma, making it a bit more substantial than the original. At Pinewood Social, a spicy chipotle tincture is spritzed over the top of the drink.
