The mezcal, caramel, and lime milkshake.

At Seattle's Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery, Autumn Martin and her team have been whipping up a new kind of shake: the boozy kind. The flavor of mezcal in this shake is unmistakable. Reminiscent of tequila but smokier and fuller — yielding an intense and rich experience. Martin pairs it with caramel, as they both share smoky attributes. The right amount of lime transcends this milkshake into a delicious anytime boozy dessert.

Lime Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
