Summer Cocktails : A Simple Mezcal Mix

During the summer I often find myself as a spontaneous hostess. Neighbors will come by for a late afternoon swim, my sister and I will end up working well into the evening, or my husband will call ahead to say we have some last minute dinner guests.

The mezcal mix is one of the drinks I always fall back on because it's very simple to put together, but tastes sophisticated enough to make me feel like I've worked a little harder than I really have. It will seriously take you seconds to put together.

Use your favorite brands or try these two which I've recently fallen in love with.

Simple Mezcal Mix
2 ounces Zignum Mezcal Reposado
1/2 ounce Manderine Napoleon
Squeeze of two lime wedges

Directions Mix these ingredients gently together in a shaker with ice, then pour over ice in a rocks glass.
