Smoky Raz
Author: Nicole Stevenson
  • 1 shot of tequila
  • ½ shot of mescal
  • 1 shot of raspberry syrup
  • the juice of one lime
  1. Make the raspberry simple syrup by putting equal parts water, raspberries and sugar into a pot and then simmering on a stove. The longer you simmer and let it sit, the stronger the flavors will be. When you’re ready, strain through a sieve into a bowl.
  2. Fill a glass with ice.
  3. Add all ingredients to a shaker filled with ice and strain into your glass.
  4. Feel free to rim the edge of your glass with salt or spicy salt which is salt mixed with dried peppers.
