Sometimes you gotta add some spice to your life! I used a hot honey with a kick that definitely came thru on this one! It’s great in this drink, but would also be BOMB on fresh biscuits. I’m sure it’s good on some fried chicken too. I gotta try that soon!
Since the fall season is here, I decided to incorporate deeper flavors. A little smokiness from the mezcal & just enough spice from this hot honey. Then mango to round it out with a little sweetness.
If you aren’t a fan of the smokiness of Mezcal, you can always make this with tequila (I’d use a reposado). Just tweak the amount of honey to taste!
NOW LET’S MIX IT UP!
- 1 oz Mezcal
- 1.5 oz Mango Liqueur
- 1 oz Hot/spicy honey
- 1 oz Lime juice
- .5 oz Cointreau
- Tajin for garnish
Rub a lime slice around the rim of your glass. Dip the rim into Tajin. I find it easiest to use a flat surface. Flat plates help wit this! Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake to chill. This should take 10-12 seconds. Maybe do a few salsa moves while you shake!! Pour into your rimmed glass and sip!
