A spicy mezcal cocktail made with mezcal, simple syrup, fresh lime juice, and spicy bitters—essentially a margarita served straight up in a chilled coupe glass.


  • 2 ounces mezcal
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 34 dashes Scrappy’s Firewater bitters (or more to taste).


Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and double strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.


If you don’t have spicy bitters you can use fresh jalapeno slices or 2-3 dashes Tobasco.
