A mezcal margarita is a smoky, refreshing twist on the iconic cocktail. That’s because the agave used in making traditional Oaxacan mezcal is roasted in underground stone ovens, resulting in rich, earthy mezcal. With tart lemon and sweet agave syrup providing the perfect contrast, you might find it hard to go back to a standard margarita.
