The Story Behind The Mezcal Margarita
This Margarita employs the talents of mezcal, tequila’s lesser-known, agave-based cousin. Mezcal imparts this cocktail with a smokiness that tempers the citrusy and tart elements in a traditional Marg. While not as easy-drinking as the original, this rendition is every bit as enjoyable for those who look to venture beyond the bounds of their typical blancos, reposados, and añejos.
