Mezcal, like tequila, is an agave-based spirit. When making mezcal, the heart of the agave plant (the piña) is slow roasted in pits, lending a more rustic, smoky tone reminiscent of a beach bonfire. Add dried crushed red pepper to the kosher salt on the rim of the glass for heat.  

How to Make It

Combine orange liqueur, mezcal, and juice in an ice-filled cocktail shaker; stir 30 seconds or until chilled. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish, if desired.
