You need to try a better mezcal

Remember, all tequilas are mezcal, but not all mezcals are tequila.

I agree with you on that. I do like a nice properly made margarita. I find it refreshing. But for the most part I just like a nice sipping tequila.
As for mezcal...it is just not my thing.

A pity, since you apparently enjoy tequila, and that's where it came from. Again, I'd suggest you try a few different mezcals. They're also available as blanco, reposado, and anejo. Perhaps steer clear of those with a maguey at the bottom.

I like that smoky taste. I was told the smokier the taste, the lower the quality mezcal. I don't know if that is true, but if it is, I apparently have pretty low standards for mezcal.

Not sure why it is a pity....I am perfectly ok having different tastes then others. Also I am very well aware of the origins of mezcal and tequila and the process that makes them different. It is not that a have a hate on for mezcal, I do sip it on occasion, it is just a flavor profile that I do not prefer. Scotch is another spirit that makes that list.

Agree, never developed a taste for mezcal and especially for Scotch. But I enjoy a good Irish whiskey on occasion (always)...

Store bought mixers are way too sweet for me. I like to use fresh fruit or juice, and it doesn't have to be lime; no cointreau or orange liquor if you have a good silver tequila.

A splash of watermelon juice or ruby red grapefruit, tequila, top off with a flavored club soda (lime La Croix goes with everything). Not a traditional marg, but refreshing without being a sugar bomb.
