Cinnamon Mezcal Margarita

Cinnamon Mezcal Margarita

The lime juice and cinnamon combine to make something beautiful and unexpected. The addition of the mezcal brings the smoke and the resulting cinnamon mezcal margarita is a total bridge between the margaritas of summer and the flavors of fall/winter.

  • 1 1/2 oz tequila
  • 1/2 oz mezcal (play with the ratio of tequila to mezcal, this is pretty light on the smoke but you can kick it up as much as you want)
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz agave simple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 each cinnamon stick (optional)


  • Add the tequila, mezcal, lime juice, simple syrup, and cinnamon powder to a shaker. Dry shake for 5 seconds to combine.
  • Salt the rim of your preferred glass, I chose a rocks glass with a  large cube of ice.
  • Add ice to the shaker, shake for a good 15 seconds and strain into your salted glass. Add cinnamon stick for garnish and enjoy!


The cinnamon and lime juice combination was actually a total mistake as I was working on something else and ended up with a bit of extra cinnamon sprinkled over some extra lime juice... of course I saw it and had to taste it, voila, the idea for the cinnamon mezcal margarita!
