50/50 Margarita


50/50 Margarita

The 50/50 Margarita was created in New York by Natasha Bermudez. Natasha split the base of the margarita between mezcal and manzanilla sherry resulting in a lower ABV version of the classic.
The mezcal margarita has smoke and vegetal notes whilst the manzanilla sherry adds a touch of salinity and minerality. It also dries and lengthens the margarita on the palate.
