No. 8

The Kings Ginger helps emphasize the delicately earthy flavor of unsmoked Fidencio mezcal in this refreshing spin on the Paloma from John McCarthy.

Notes: If you can't track down the Fidencio Sin Humo, use a white tequila—the smokiness of other mezcals would likely overpower the other flavors in this drink.

Don't use bottled juices for this drink—squeeze them fresh.
