Smoky Margarita

December 17, 2022

Our smoky margarita is consistently our top seller at the Dry Land Distillers tasting room. It’s a fresh, bright margarita, similar to a coin-style marg.

The smokey profile of the cactus spirit layers beautifully with the bright/tart flavors of citrus for a unique and refreshing spin on a classic drink.

You can make this a spicy margarita using fresh jalapeños.



  1. Mix the juices and the simple syrup together.
  2. If you want salt on the glass, rub the rim of a large rocks glass with fresh lime And dip the rim in coarse salt.
  3. Fill the glass with ice.
  4. Fill your cocktail shaker with ice and add the juice mix and the cactus spirit. Shake aggressively for 10 – 15 seconds.
  5. Strain into your prepared glass and top with additional ice as needed.
  6. Garnish with a slice of lime. Enjoy!

For a Spicy Margarita

Before you add the ice to your cocktail shaker, muddle 2 – 3 slices of fresh jalapenos in your shaker. Leave the muddled chilis in the shaker and follow the recipe above.

We leave the seeds in the chilis – the seeds and pith dd a boost of extra heat.
