Conjure up the name "Anthony Weiner" and what do you get? Liar, pervert, disgraced congressman from New York City ... and former college roomate of Jon Stewart, for what that's worth.

THE CARLOS DANGER 


2 ounces mezcal 
½ ounce grapefruit juice 
½ ounce honey syrup 
½ ounce fresh lime juice 
Campari
