Ingredients

  • 2 oz mezcal regular tequila works too!
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz honey syrup
  • salt for the rim

Instructions

  • 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.

Honey Syrup:

  • 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.

Notes

Honey syrup will last for up to three months in the pantry or refrigerator.
