It’s Been A Long Week: Grapefruit Gentian Amaro Highball

As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make yourself a glass or two, on us — you deserve it.


It’s that in-between time where long weekends are near — and those surely call for tequila. LVMH’s own Volcán tequila makes the perfect base for an amaro highball: a tad bit of sweet to complement the tequila. Prepared by Instagram’s own Gastronomista, the cocktail is the way to sliding into unlimited summer boozing with fresh Mexican holy water.
