That is a festive hat

That is a festive hat

The smokey mezcal really pops in this twist on a standard margarita. Make sure to use freshly squeezed lime juice only.


  • 1 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz mezcal
  • 1/2 oz triple sec

Mix everything together and pour over ice. Garnish with a lime wedge.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    How festive; we’re going out for Mexican tomorrow night, perhaps I’ll have a Margarita!
    You guys must have an amazingly stocked liquor cabinet. We should have a party!

    Sounds great – I love Margaritas.
    BTW – do you eat the scorpion?

  7. I can see how this would be really good. Mezcal has a more earthy flavor than tequila and I think this would be a nice way to use it. I have really never thought of using Mezcal for anything other than shots so this recipe of yours gets my mind a-wandering! Thanks. Stay cozy.

  8. Oh, I love margaritas. You guys should pop over and hang out. I bet we could tear up some cocktails! Its only like a 12-18 hour drive or something, right?

    Cheers! Gotta get my hands on some mezcal…
