The fourth and final of our series dedicated to our friend’s bathroom renovation, “The Half Day” is a split mezcal and tequila base margarita with guava nectar, lime, and our lime and sea salt bitters. I imagine the light smoke flavor being reminiscent of the contractors peeling out of her driveway on their way to the bar after working a “hard” half day on her bathroom. Otherwise this cocktail is lightly sweet but well balanced and gives you a real vacation feel.
1 oz Mezcal Espadin
1 oz Blanco Tequila
2 oz Guava Nectar
.5 oz Lime Juice
1 bar spoon Light Agave Nectar
2 dashes Remedy Cocktail Company Lime & Sea Salt Bitters
Salt or Sugar Rim
Shake all ingredients with ice until chilled. Pour over crushed ice or pebble ice in a margarita glass rimmed with margarita salt or smoked Maldon sea salt. Garnish with a lime wheel.
