Straight up, we love a margarita. We also love what happens when you combine bright floral flavors like basil with deep, smoky flavors like mezcal. Enter the Fresh Basil Mezcal Margarita, a beautiful, balanced cocktail that will soon become your favorite spring or summer drink. Be sure to peel the lemon before you squeeze the juice to use the whole lemon. And if you love bitters in a cocktail, increase the number of lemon peel strips to three.
