Lots of ginger and a subtle kick of smoked chilli combine with lime and tequila or mescal to deliver a Mexican vibe to this cocktail. Chipotle powder is available from specialist Mexican suppliers, but if you don't have it try using chilli flakes instead.
Place ginger in a muddler or mortar with sugar and pound to a paste. Add limes and muddle until the limes are broken up and juices released. Tip into a jug and mix in mescal or tequila and chilli powder. Stir in ice cubes and serve.
