Watermelon Margarita

This margarita recipe comes from Uncle Pete's Cocktail Shop on YouTube. It features mezcal for more smoky character and acid-modified watermelon juice, rather than using both watermelon juice AND lime juice. The acid-modified juice has the flavour of watermelon with the same acidic profile of a lime.
