Add a Healthy Kick to This Year’s Cinco de Mayo Margarita

In case you didn’t know, you can’t really celebrate Cinco de Mayo without indulging in a cold, refreshing margarita. Typically they’re tequila-based, but this recipe from GEM&BOLT uses mezcal to serve up a smoky twist on the classic. Made from 100-percent agave, GEM&BOLT’s mezcal is distilled with a super herb called damiana, which is used in lieu of triple sec (also found in a regular margarita). And since we’re all about getting health benefits on a buzz, we say don’t shy away from a pinch of turmeric. Adding the spice gives this drink an anti-inflammatory boost, as well as a spicy-sweet flavor. (Once you fall in love with this drink, you’ll want to add turmeric to anything and everything.
