A Mezcal Spicy Mama is perfect for the end of the week. Made with smoky mezcal, Pama pomegranate liqueur, fresh lemon juice, agave and a kicker of spicy harissa or muddled jalapenos, this mezcal cocktail is sure to calm you down and rev you up!
2 oz mezcal
1 1/2 oz Pama liqueur
1 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz agave nectar
1/2 t harissa or muddle a few jalapeno slices
Chili Salt for rim or just kosher salt
Fill your martini glass with ice and then top with water to chill.
Fill shaker with ice unless you are using jalapeno instead of harissa. In this case muddle a few slices of jalapeno for heat. Add ice and rest of drink ingredients. Shake 30 times.
Empty martini glass and run a slice of lemon around the rim. Pour salt onto a plate and then dip rim into it. Now strain or not, your cocktail into the glass. Last but not least please toast to spicy mama’s!
