Love a good margarita? Me too! This takes it up a notch. With jalapenos (or serrano if you really love spice) for a kick and cucumber and basil to cool it down and brighten it up, this is a perfectly refreshing but zesty cocktail. 

Why did I call it the El Camino? First, I LOVE Breaking Bad, and honestly, I think this is the perfect cocktail to enjoy while watching the best drama show ever made. It's refreshingly original, fun, and captivating but puts in a punch. Second, it's made using Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul's amazing mezcal, Dos Hombres. It doesn't get any better.

Spicy Margarita with Dos Hombres




  • 1 cucumber slice, diced

  • 2 jalapeno (or serrano for extra heat) slices, diced

  • 3 large basil leaves


  • 1.5 ounces blanco tequila

  • 1.5 ounces Dos Hombres mezcal

  • 2 ounces lime juice

  • 1 ounce Cointreau

  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup


  • Coarse salt

  • Lime zest

  • Tajin


  • 1 Slice jalapeno

  • 1 slice of lime (for rim)

  1. In your shaker, muddle the cucumber, jalapeno, and basil.

  2. Fill your shaker with ice.

  3. Add in all drink ingredients and shake for about 10 seconds or until the shaker gets cold and frosty.

  4. Mix together the rim ingredients, however much of each is up to you, or you can use sugar instead of salt or tajin if you want to balance out the spice. Using a lime slice or rind, rub the rim of the glass to make the rim mixture stick. Rim your cocktail glass and add ice.

  5. Strain the cocktail into the prepared glass.

  6. Garnish with all, some or none of the garnishes - up to you! Then enjoy...b*tch.
