  • 3 ounces mezcal
  • 2 teaspoons grenadine, or more to taste
  • 2 small orange wedges

Step 2Squeeze the juice from the lime halves. Mix about 1 tablespoon lime juice with the orange juice and mezcal. Divide between the 2 glasses. Float a little grenadine on top, place an orange wedge on each rim and serve.
