Ilegal Mezcal Recipes

Signature Cocktails by Ilegal Bartenders

Handcrafted in small-batches, Ilegal Mezcal has a beautifully balanced profile, with a mouth full of agave and a hint of smoke. A unique and complex taste for those who enjoy sipping spirits like tequila, bourbon, or craft gin.

While our mezcal is perfect neat, it is exceptional in cocktails – originals and reimagined classics alike.  Check out our signature mezcal cocktail recipes, and try Ilegal as the base spirit in a Mezcal Margarita, a Mezcal Mule, or your favorite cocktail.

The Bronx Brewery and Ilegal Mezcal announced a limited-release, mezcal margarita-inspired collab that brings the two NYC-based brands together to create a new kind of hard seltzer – Side Hustle Seltzerita, a 7% ABV hard seltzer bursts with grapefruit, lime and bravo hops, with bright mezcal flavor from aging with Ilegal oak staves.

The explosive growth of the tequila category made headlines in 2020, but the spirit isn’t the year’s only agave-fueled success story. Mezcal, tequila’s smoky sibling, has become a favorite of bartenders and cocktail enthusiasts, and the spirit is rapidly growing in popularity as new consumers discover it.
