THE SPICY MEZCALITA

Mezcal is tequila's smoky cousin. Combined with the jalapeno's spice, this drink is refreshing and unexpected.

0505 gsi-003

THE INGREDIENTS (enough for two drinks)

  • 2oz Tequila
  • 1oz Mezcal
  • 1.5 oz Cointreau
  • 1.5 oz Fresh squeezed lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 2 slices fresh jalapeno (plus 2 slices for garnish)
  • 2 slices of lime to garnish

Combine the tequila, mezcal, Cointreau, lime juice & 2 slices of jalapeno into a shaker or we used the DukJug and it works great! Add ice to above the level of the liquid - shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Strain drink in the Infinity Backpacker Mug or glasses with ice. Add the lime slices and jalapeno for garnish. Share and celebrate!
