DifficultyIntermediate

Cocktail by Bryan Muirhead, Owner of Holy Spirits & Bar Director of Quesadilla Gorilla.

Yields1 Serving
 1 oz mezcal
 1 oz jalapeño infused tequila
 ¾ oz lime
 ¾ oz honey syrup
 2 dashes angostura bitters
 1 dash grapefruit bitters
 Pink himalayan salt
1

It’s tough to let mezcal lead the way in a cocktail, but it can be done, and done well. The Hot Hunnie features a spicy tequila that pairs up with local honey and a combination of bitters, adding a nuttiness to the already smoky combination of flavors. Topped with a lime wheel, and rimmed with pink himalayan sea salt, it’s important to note that rimming the entire glass is not the goal. Not everyone wants salt with every sip. Providing a smaller region of a salt garnish on a cocktail like this adds benefit to both the taste and the appearance of the drink.
