Mezcal Margarita

Casa Mezcal has a line of authentic Mexican mezcal, Los Amantes, perfect for a margarita. House-made and blended salt varietals such as hibiscus, tamarind, avocado and grasshopper salt allow guests to personalize their potables while introducing new, tangy flavors to the traditional margarita and fresh fruit cocktails. Each salt is paired thoughtfully with its cocktail counterpart at Casa Mezcal and might make for an interesting twist to try at home. Mezcal is often seen as tequila’s darker, smokier brother, and is gaining momentum on the mixology scene. The in-demand artisanal spirit is made from the center of the agave plant, the piña, which is cooked in an oven or fire pit (hence its smoky flavor) for several days before being distilled in large vats or barrels. Though mezcal isn’t produced as widely or largely as tequila, there is a growing demand for the spirit in upscale cocktail bars. This is the recipe for the special Mezcal Margarita.

Margarita Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Margarita Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
