Having taken the world by storm with their Pocket Negroni and Freezer Martini, Whitebox have truly risen to the RTD (ready to drink) cocktail game in record timing. And, having worked with them since close to their inception, we hatched a plan along with Mezcal maestros Pensador to produce their next classic in the making, this time with a twist, on the iconic margarita.
Using Pensador's meticulously crafted mezcal lends earthy minerals, pine-like herbs, and floral nectar backed by gentle smoke. With zesty, lifted lime juice added along with orange-flavoured liquer Triple sec delivering it's unique combination of sweetness and acidity, this is an oasis of flavour. Punchy, with enough smoke to intrigue rather than alienate, we were overjoyed at the result. And, with the simple, subtle, yet smashable combo of ingredients confirmed we reached out to illustrator Gavin Connell to bring it to life, and boy did he!
These eye-catching winners are pocket perfection, ideal for a trip to the park, the cinema or to a festival.
