This cocktail has the bones of a margarita, which is my absolute favorite summer classic, but adds in fresh watermelon, which I have always associated with barbecues in the park, and then the basil and habanero just add wonderful, bright freshness and a little kick.

Ingredients

    • 1 cube watermelon (about 1 inch)
    • 2 torn basil leaves
    • 1 small slice red or orange habanero pepper
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 3/4 ounce (1½ tablespoons) freshly squeezed lime juice
    • 3/4 ounce (1½ tablespoons) simple syrup
    • 1½ ounces (3 tablespoons) mezcal

Preparation

Add all ingredients to tin and shake vigorously with ice for about 8 seconds.

Double strain over fresh ice in a rocks glass.
