Frozen Mezcal Palomas
This is a Summer cocktail you won't soon forget. It's bright and tart like a margarita, but not too sweet, and the soft, floral side of grapefruit comes forward, along with perfectly balanced bitterness. The key here, though, is the base spirit. Use a good bottle of mezcal (such as Mezcal Jaral De Berrio) to add a subtle savory quality and an herbal layer to the drink. You may think of mezcal as smoky, but the smoke from roasted agave is just a whisper in this cocktail.
