Say hello to summer's new go-to drink. Instead of the traditional lime juice used in a margarita, we went with lemon juice to soften the smokiness of the mezcal. It's light and refreshing enough for a pool party but has a little edge thanks to its salt and pepper rim.

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix equal parts salt and pepper on a plate. Run a wedge of lemon around the rim of two rocks glasses; dip into salt and pepper mixture. Place mezcal, triple sec, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice; shake until outside is cold and frosty, about 30 seconds. Strain over ice into prepared glasses; serve immediately with lemon wedges.
