Caramba! This is a good one. It is adapted from the recipe booklet that comes with the Domaine de Canton, and if you like a marg you will enjoy this cocktail. At first sniff and sip, I thought it might be another “too much Mezcal” drink, but no. And now I’m wishing I had made it a little bigger. Ingredients:
- 1.25 oz Domaine de Canton (1 oz if you use tequila)
- 0.75 oz Mezcal (Sombra – 1 oz if you use tequila)
- 0.5 oz triple sec (Cointreau)
- 0.5 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
Chill a coupe in the freezer and put some flaked salt in a flat plate. Juice a lime and set aside a piece of rind for garnish. Fill shaker with ice, add ingredients, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds -the dilution is important. Retrieve the glass, coat the rim with the salt, and strain the ingredients into the glass. Twist the lime garnish into the glass to release the oils. So good.
