Scott Beattie’s Beachfire Margarita appears in his book Artisanal Cocktails. It’s almost a standard Margarita, but the split tequila-mezcal base makes it reminiscent of a summertime beach bonfire. Delicious!

If you’d like a salted rim, start by rubbing a slice of lime around the outside edge of a tall glass. Roll the edge of the glass in a plate of coarse salt, and shake off the excess.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a tall ice-filled glass (the one you prepped earlier, if you’re having a salted rim). Garnish with a lime wheel.
