Make Bodega’s Spicy Passionfruit Mezcal Cocktail

July 27, 2015

Welcome to A Drink You Can Actually Make, Eater’s first ever recipe series dedicated to simple cocktails from new bars across the country.

At hip taco spot Bodega Taqueria y Tequila in Miami, bar manager Bryan Canales combines several Mexican flavors into one cocktail that can also be stretched into a group punch (just multiply the recipe quantities times the number of desired drinks and add an ounce of water for each). Think, typical spicy margarita flavors—though mezcal replaces the usual tequila—plus passionfruit, hibiscus, and Mexican hibiscus-flavored soda.
