Mesa Alta refers to the towering plateaus of the high desert. A little heat from Ancho Reyes Verde coupled with the lean, citrusy profile of Mommenpop Seville Orange Aperitif makes for a novel take on what can charitably be called a margarita.

- Combine the Mommenpop, lime juice, simple syrup, Ancho Reyes, and sumac bitters in a cocktail shaker over ice and stir to combine.
- Coat the rim of a rocks glass with salt and fill with ice. Strain the shaker into the glass and garnish with a lime wedge.
