Tart, smoky, like a mezcal-kissed Margarita, without the hangover.
- 3 oz Smoky no.56
- 1.5 oz fresh lime juice
- 1 oz lime syrup (we use RAFT)
- .5 oz jalapeno orange simple syrup**
- Shake all ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker just until chilled (don’t over-dilute). Strain into a rocks glass with ice. Garnish with salt and lime.
**To make the spicy simple syrup, stir together ¼ cup boiling water and either ¼ cup sugar or agave syrup. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Muddle in half an orange (peeled & cut into chunks) and half a large jalapeño, cut into 4 pieces. Let cool, then cover and refrigerate for 6-48 hours before straining into a clean bottle. Keeps up to 2 weeks.
