The Spicy Buddha {a spicy margarita with a mezcal float}

If there’s one cocktail we should all know how to make, it’s a margarita. I’ve personally become a big fan of Tommy’s margarita recipe which includes only 100% agave tequila, lime juice and agave nectar. Easy to make and even easier to drink, it’s one we should all have in our repertoire. And, once you have that one mastered, you can move on to making this spicy margarita with a mezcal float. The idea behind the drink is the same, only difference is using a Thai chili infused tequila and a barspoon of mezcal.

The first time I made this spicy margarita was at Midtown Eats. I was bartending and a couple came in asking for a spicy tequila drink with a little bit of mezcal. I’ve made it a few times since then for other customers at the restaurant as well as at home. Each time it’s been thoroughly enjoyed, and sometimes seconds are requested – and given, of course.
