El Camino


Salt for rimming glass*

1 ounce tequila (CAMP recommends Mi Campo Reposado)

½ ounce mezcal (CAMP recommends Ilegal)

½ ounce ginger liqueur

1 ounce lime juice

¾ ounce brewed hibiscus tea

½ ounce agave

Garnish: Dehydrated lime wheel

*CAMP uses black lava salt for extra flair, but regular salt works just as well.


Salt the rim of a double rocks glass. In a cocktail tin, combine all ingredients except garnish. Shake for 15 seconds, then pour over ice into rocks glass. Garnish with dehydrated lime.
