Smoky Cherry Margarita

Sweet, tangy, smoky, and tart, this cocktail offers a new twist on the classic margarita. If you're feeling ambitious, substitute the cherry syrup for fresh cherry juice. Cheers!

Smoky Cherry Margarita
makes 1 drink

For the cocktail:
2 oz Mezcal or silver tequila
1/2 oz cherry syrup (from a jar of maraschino or brandied cherries)
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
Fat pinch of smoked paprika
Club soda
Lime wedges for garnish

For the salted rim (optional):
1/2 tbsp coarse sea salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp smoked paprika

Mix together the salt, sugar, and smoked paprika on a rimmed plate until evenly distributed. Rub the rim of a rocks glass with a lime wedge and dip the glass into the salt mixture. Fill the glass with large ice cubes.

Combine the tequila, cherry syrup, lime juice and paprika in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into the rocks glass, top with a splash of club soda, and garnish with a lime wedge.
