The Dirty Ashtray Cocktail ~ Nevermind salt-dipped limes and Coronas, this is the way to have your next Mexican beer. It’s layered, nuanced and has a savory bite to go with it. It’s Tecate with a shot mezcal (regular blanco will work too), Tajin rim, a few drop of Cholula and a black pepper dipped lime. If you like savory drinks like Bloody Marys, you will love this.
I know the name may not be the best selling point for a few of you, but trust me—it’s all in the drink. And if you are anything like me, you’ll actually love the name because it’s compelling and you are immediately curious.
So go ahead: skip the salt, grab the black pepper for your lime wedge, chill the Tecate, grab a Cholula if you don’t already have a bottle in the fridge and bypass the margarita and save your tequila for this drink—because this is how you should be doing Cinco de Mayo this year.
