Matthew Biancaniello’s “Whole Enchilada” Margarita
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
3/4 oz agave syrup*
1/4 oz smoked jalapeno tincture* (or add a pinch of Hepp’s chipotle or ghost pepper salt)
1 oz tequila
1 oz mezcal
1 oz blood orange juice
Add ice and shake. Garnish with borage flowers or dehydrated blood orange slices. Or just drink it as is!
*To make agave syrup: combine equal parts agave and water and mix until it dissolves.
*To make jalapeno tincture: add a handful of smoked jalapenos (or fresh jalapenos) to high proof vodka and let marinate. You can use an old liquor bottle or a mason jar. It will keep indefinitely.
