It’s Eternal Riff #5!

For those of you who’ve been here a while, you might recall we’re working on a never-ending collaboration with Brian Johnson from Better Cocktails at Home. Basically, we started with a simple Tommy’s Margarita, and we’ve passed this cocktail back and forth, each changing one thing each time.

This cocktail was the first time we changed the base spirit – though we stayed in the same “family tree” – we went from Tequila to Mescal. Check out the video below!
