Holly Jolly Tequila Cocktail

Here is a Christmas-y riff on a margarita. The touch of mezcal and the ancho salt rim add that bit of smoke and heat -- a nod to his love of smoking meats.⠀


1 1/2 oz tequila (blanco or reposado -- both are good here)⠀

1/2 oz mezcal⠀

3/4 oz lime juice⠀

3/4 oz homemade cranberry-ginger syrup⠀

Garnish: sugared cranberries and ginger on icicle pick⠀

Rim: ancho chile salt⠀


Rim glass. Combine ingredients, shake with ice, and strain over fresh ice. Garnish.⠀
