Spicy Mezcal Paloma

Here is a Paloma with heat, smoke, and sweet flavors. Ancho Reyes chili liqueur provides a warm, spicy kick to this cocktail, while a tad of mezcal adds smoke and depth. Pineapple juice brings sweetness to the other assertive flavors. For those who aren't mezcal fans, eliminate it and instead add additional tequila. Tajin seasoning, with chili pepper, dehydrated lime, and salt, rims the glasses with a hot, salty, sour bite. Enjoy...carefully! 😉
