What Happens In Cancun... Comes Back To Jersey!

Like everyone else, Bella the Syrup Queen needs a vacation too! Last week I took a trip to the Cancun and brought some of it home with me - specifically their Mezcal and Tamarindo Con Chamoy.

Naturally, my brain goes to MARGARITAS! Something interesting I recently learned is that Tequila is a form of Mezcal, not the other way around. Mezcal has a distinct smoky flavor profile unlike tequila. And since I love a sweet spicy margarita, I used Simply Bella's Orange Simple Syrup to balance the Tamarindo Con Chamoy pictured in the "Mexi-rita" cocktail below.

I decided to make my own Tamarindo straw and blend it in the drink!

Mexi-rita Cocktail

  • 1.5oz Mezcales De Leyenda Guerrero

  • 1oz Simply Bella's Orange Simple Syrup

  • 1oz Lime Juice

  • Dime size of Tamarindo Con Chamoy for the drink

  • Tamarindo Con Chamoy up to your discretion for the straw
