As America's barbecue 
obsession grows, 
people are looking for smokiness even in cocktails. This mezcal drink is a riff on the 
gin-based Salty Dog. Slideshow: Cocktails for Grilling

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a pitcher, combine the mezcal, grapefruit juice, elderflower liqueur, lime juice and agave; stir well. Refrigerate until chilled, 1 hour.

Step 2    

Spread the peppercorn sugar on a small plate. Moisten the outer rim of each of 8 martini glasses or coupes with the lime wedge and coat lightly with the peppercorn sugar.

Step 3    

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Working in batches and adding fresh ice, shake well and strain the drink into the prepared martini glasses.
