A perfectly balanced, slightly sweet, super-refreshing mezcal margarita!
2ozmezcalregular tequila works too!
1ozfresh lime juice
saltfor the rim
Put all of the ingredients, minus the salt, into a cocktail shaker or jar with a tight-fitting lid (I use a mason jar). Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously until you feel that everything is cold. Strain into a chilled glass with fresh ice, garnish with a lime wedge.
Bring 1/2c honey and 1/2c water to a boil. Simmer on low for five minutes. Pour into a jar and let cool completely before using.
Honey syrup will last for up to three months in the pantry or refrigerator.
