Mezcal Margarita

Wow has this been the best cocktail discovery in our lives. We’re both huge margarita fans, so when we picked up a bottle of mezcal from our local liquor shop and were wondering what cocktail to craft with it, our minds turn there. Margaritas. Smoky and spicy, with a sweet lime finish, these are hard to put down (or not whip up a second batch).

Our original version omitted the jalapeño, but the drink lacked just that little oomph to round it off. You need the burn of the pepper to hit all the good parts of the palate.
