  • 4 Large Limes
  • 4 Shots of Mezcal (1 to 1.5 oz per shot)

Instructions
  1. Make rhubarb simple syrup in advance, allowing time for it to cool. I used
  2. this simple recipe
  3. and added some lemon zest (optional). The extra simple syrup is great on ice cream, yogurt, tea cake, or in sparkling water/seltzer.
  4. Rim glasses with coarse salt. Run a lime wedge along the rim of the glass first to help the salt stick!
  5. Juice the limes and add the fresh juice, mezcal, 4 ounces of rhubarb simple syrup, rosewater if you're using (if you're unsure if you like the flavor of rose, start with less and add more to taste), and ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake to combine and chill.
  6. Pour into 4 glasses. To dress up your drinks, add a lime wedge or my favorite, a sprinkle of dried rose petals (available at Whole Foods or usually any local grocery or specialty food shop that has dried lavender). Enjoy!
