A paloma is traditionally made with tequila, grapefruit juice, and lime, but this version uses mezcal instead of tequila for a nice smoky twist! The smoke flavor is due to the underground ovens filled with volcanic rock, coal and wood that are used to cook the agave to produce the mezcal. I like to rim the glass with coarse smoked salt or black salt, but feel free to use regular kosher salt.
