Mezcal lovers rejoice! This ‘rita recipe is the one you have been waiting for. JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa

There is a lot to love about JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa. The location, beach, views, stylish and comfortable rooms, tranquil Mayan spa, that amazing pool—we could keep this going for hours. But one of the most impressive things about this property is the incredible creativity and ingenuity on display with the margarita menu. Yes, I am comparing a list of margz to one of the nicest stretches of beach in Cancun and a pool so long you’ll feel like you could float for days.

Why is this margarita menu so special? Because it features 150 different margaritas. I know, that’s a lot of margz, friends. In fact, that is so many margaritas that even if your vacation was 150 days long, you still might not finish the entire menu, because sometimes you just need a break. And if you only visit this resort once a year, well, you’ll probably never be able to try them all. Basically, your best bet is to trust your gut and pick those margaritas that seem like they fit your style.

So, when I asked for just one recipe, I told the resident bar wizards at JW Marriott Cancun to give me a crowd favorite. “Give me a real people pleaser,” I told them. In return, we received this recipe for the Mezcalina. Enjoy!
