The ???, aka the CantaConundrum (aka the unnamed summer cocktail of me)

Author Notes: I concocted this for a special visit from one of my BFFs, who lives nearly three thousand miles away and with whom, these days, I share way too few summer cocktails. She's a confident and creative mixologist, so I wanted to impress her.
