Mezcal Margarita


  • 5 drops saline solution* (or pinch salt)
  • ½ ounce agave syrup
  • ½ ounce Cointreau
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces mezcal (Del Maguey Vida)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. 
  2. Add ice, then shake for 10-12 seconds until the outside of the shaker is frosty cold. 
  3. Strain into coupe or cocktail glass. 
  4. Garnish with a lime wedge. 

*Saline Solution: Combine 1 tbsp salt and 4 tbsps water in a small saucepan. Heat on medium while stirring. Do not let boil. Stir until completely integrated — no salt sludge should remain at the bottom of the pan. Store in a small dropper bottle. Should keep for at least six months.
