Smokin' Good Margarita


2 ounces quality, good silver tequila (Herradura is nice)


First, prepare your glasses. Pour a 4 inch circle of kosher salt on a plate, run an open lime around the rim of the glass and then dip the rim of the glass in the salt. Let it dry for a minute or two. Be careful when adding ice to the glass - you don't want to knock the salt off the rim.
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with crushed ice, shake and strain into your prepared glass. Then, pour a tablespoon or so of the Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal over the top. Finally, garnish with a lime, serve, and let the Margarita Madness begin!




The key ingredient in this margarita is Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal. A distilled alcoholic beverage made from the agave plant and bottled in Oaxaca, Mexico, this particular mezcal has a distinct smokiness to it. A tablespoon or so floated on top of your margarita takes it to another place, a place of smoky wonderful-ness.
