Smoke & Spice Paloma
This might be our favorite way to drink mezcal! Its smokiness can be overbearing in some recipes, but its bold edges are smoothed out and complemented by the sweet, spicy, sour and salty flavors in this delicious Paloma riff.
Smoke & Spice Paloma Recipe:
1 oz mezcal
.75 oz lime juice
.25 oz agave nectar
Garnish: glass rimmed with grapefruit and Tajín, lime wheel
Rim your glass with a grapefruit wedge and Tajín then shake off any excess seasoning. Fill glass with ice and set aside (if you’re not making the drink right away, save this step until just before making). Combine all ingredients except Grapefruit Soda in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into your prepared glass and top with Grapefruit Soda. Stir and garnish with a lime wheel.
Quench your thirst with this refreshing coffee-spiked Paloma. We recommend substituting part or all of the tequila with mezcal for a smoky spin!

Inspired by the cocktail menu at PDT (short for Please Don't Tell) in Hong Kong, this low-ABV recipe is full of fresh, savory flavors.
.75 oz mezcal
.75 oz cold-pressed celery juice (store-bought or homemade)
Garnish: lime and salt rim, fresh celery stalk and cucumber wheels (optional)
Rim the edge of a glass with the lime wedge, dip into a shallow dish of fine kosher salt, then shake off any excess salt from the glass. Add ice and all other ingredients to the glass, stir, and garnish if desired.
Equal parts smoky and tart, this refreshing cocktail tastes just as good while sitting around the campfire as it does when you're lounging on the beach.
