Method Prep:10min › Ready in:10min
Mix smoked salt and sugar together on a small plate. Wipe the rim of a tall glass with a lime wedge, then dip rim into salt-sugar mixture. Fill glass with ice.
Fill a cocktail shaker with more ice. Pour in tequila, lime juice and mezcal. Cover and shake until very cold. Strain into prepared glass and add soda water. Slowly drizzle pomegranate simple syrup; the syrup will settle to the bottom of the glass, making it a great festive colour.
Pomegranate simple syrup:
To make enough pomegranate simple syrup for 4 cocktails: Put 60g sugar and 60ml pomegranate juice in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Cover and shake until sugar is dissolved. Chill, covered, for up to 1 week.
