Mezcal Margarita Negra
One of my favourite things about the @mrblackspirits team is that they make coffee cocktails outside of the espresso martini. Better yet, they're actually really tasty. Today's drink is @sjberto's margarita negra recipe.
For the base, I've gone for the delicately sweet and softly spicy Tepeztate Mezcal from @gentedemezcal. Dubbed 'Amazon's nightcap', it's light and floral with sweet thyme and birds beak chilli. Mr Black Colombian single origin joins the party along with a tropical cashew syrup and balanced by lime and a spicy salt from Cornwall described as Mexico meets Asia for a karaoke sing off.
It sounds a bit mad but trust me, it is a top notch cocktail 👌
