Enjoy Baja Anytime with a Corona-Mezcalita

by Michael Satterfield

I have spent a lot of time in Mexico, from Baja racing to enjoying the beach at my favorite resort Mexico is full of amazing memories, friends, and of course lots of great drinks. Over the last few years, I have attended classes on Tequila and Mezcal to learn more about Mexico's native agave drinks. While a great Mezcal like Bozal should be sipped, I know that sometimes you want to mix it up and have some fun. Here is one of my favorite party drinks that takes me back to Baja.

Corona Mezalita 
  • 1 7oz. of your favorite Margarita Mix (I like Baja Bob's)
  • 2 oz. Bozal Mezcal 
  • 1.5 oz. Triple Sec
  • .5 oz. Simple Syrup
  • 1.5 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
  • Lime Wedge
  • Salt or Spice Salt 
  • 1 Bottle of Corona Extra
1. Combine Mezcal, triple sec, simple syrup and fresh lime juice in a shaker. Fill halfway with ice and shake well.
2. Rim the glass with salt and fill with ice.
3. Strain the mixture into the glass.
4. Open the bottle of Corona Extra and flip it upside down into the drink.
5. Add a lime wedge, a straw, and enjoy.
