A Holiday Cocktail: Entertaining Family’s Cranberry Mezcalrita

This smoky, smooth drink is one of my favorite cocktails to serve this time of year. It is tart and sweet, and the cranberry notes are a perfect nod to the holiday season. Sip this drink with friends and make merry!

What you need:

Unsweetened cranberry juice

Mezcal

1 Lime

Agave Nectar

Bittercube Jamaican #1 Bitters (allspice, ginger, and black pepper)

Cinnamon

Maple sugar

Salt

Mezcal and bitters

Directions:

Mix together 2 oz. of mezcal, the juice from 1/2 lime, 3 oz. of unsweetened cranberry juice, 2 teaspoons of agave nectar, and a dash of Bittercube Jamaican bitters.

To prepare the glass, rub a wedge of lime around the the rim and then roll the edge of your glass in a mixture of cinnamon, maple sugar, and salt.

Pour the mezcalrita into your prepared glass and serve with a fancy lime zest ice cube. ‘Tis the season to be jolly!
