About this Cocktail

A Thompson's Bookstore Spring 2016 cocktail submission to Cointreau's Art of the Margarita competition. Britney Day balanced the beauty and character of a organic mescal from Del Maguey and spiced it up with a uniquely salted rim and Ancho Chili Reyes nose.

  • 3/4 oz Lime Juice
  • 3/4 oz Orange Juice
  • 1/4 oz Simple Syrup
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz Ancho Chili Reyes Liquor
  • 1.5 oz Vida Mezcal
  • 4 dashes Jerry Thomas Bitters

Shake and strain over fresh ice, float the 1/2 oz Ancho Chili Liquor and dash the Jerry Thomas over the ice cubes. Serve in a BBQ Smoked Salt rimmed glass.
