Lime and mint-infused mezcal

Just in time for summer! Lime and mint-infused mezcal! Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

Mezcal is a sort of smoky tequila (smoky in the same way that scotch is smoky), and infusing it with lime and mint plays off the smokiness in a really fun way. Squeeze out one lime into a jar and drop the squeezed-out lime quarters in. Add a couple of big sprigs of fresh mint. Pour in tequila. Let sit a couple of days. Strain and enjoy.

So far the best use I've come up with is sipping over ice, but I'll create a cocktail yet!
