In a medium margarita glass, place 1 ounce of silver tequila in your cup, in a brand of your choice. Many suggest Patron Silver tequila, but any tequila off your shelf will do.
Add ½ ounce of mezcal to your mixture. Mezcal is quite the unusual beverage, which gives this mixture the "smoky" undertone. Mezcal is an alcoholic drink that derives from the maguey plant, which is a form of agave.
Take 1 ounce of lime juice and add it to your concoction. This will give your drink that pucker essence. It will also offset any strong overtones your drink may have.
Pour in 1-1/2 ounces of blood-orange simple syrup. This will give your drink that sweet sensation, and create a balance between sweet and sour. Also, it is the final touch that gives your drink that "sunset" coloring.
Pour a small amount of ice into your glass. After adding ice, feel free to add a slice of lime to the rim of the drink to create the perfect image of your creation: the Mexican Sunset. Enjoy!
