Ingredients

Tequila (Don Julio Reposado): 45 ml of this golden delight. It's smooth, with just enough kick to remind you it's there.

Orange Curaçao Liqueur: 15 ml to add a bit of citrusy depth and that subtle sweet bitterness.

Mezcal: 10 ml for that hint of smokiness, because who doesn’t love a bit of drama in their drink?

Saline Solution: 5 ml (4:1 water to salt ratio)—it's like the secret handshake among bartenders to balance and enhance flavours.

Triple Sec: 15 ml for that extra citrus kick that ties everything together.

Cranberry Juice: 30 ml to bring in the Cosmo vibe and give it that gorgeous blush colour.

Fresh Lime Juice: 15 ml; fresh is always best, and it adds that necessary tang.

Garnish: A lemon twist for that final touch. 

Mixing Your Masterpiece

Grab a shaker and throw in all the liquid ingredients. This is where the magic starts. The tequila, mezcal, and all those citrusy elements begin to get acquainted. Add ice. Don’t be shy. Fill it up to give everything a good, cold stir. Shake it. Not just a little wiggle. Give it your all! Strain it into a chilled glass. Garnish with that lemon twist. It adds a subtle but noticeable zest that elevates the whole experience.
