Joe's Mezcal Margarita

  • Servings: 1 cocktail
  • Print
We doubled this recipe to make two cocktails.  The salted rim is optional; Ann prefers a non-salted rim while Andy likes the salted rim.

  • 4 slices cucumber
  • 2 oz mezcal
  • 1.5 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz agave (diluted 1:1 with water) Note: we added another 1/4 oz agave – undiluted, wanting it a tad sweeter
  • Kosher salt with a pinch of chipotle chili powder (or a chili powder of your choice).
  • 1 two inch peel of cucumber for garnish.
  1. If you are going to salt the rim, spread salt and chili mix on small plate. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of the glass and dip it in the salt to coat. Set aside.
  2. In cocktail shaker muddle the 4 slices of cucumber and then add the mezcal, lime juice, and agave.  Fill the shaker with ice cubes, shake 10 to 15 times, and then strain into the prepared glass. Fill the glass with ice cubes and garnish with the cucumber peel.
