You can’t go wrong delivering a pitcher of margaritas — or a handful of ice-cold Mexican beers (a dark Negra Modelo, especially) — to the table to accompany this wild turkey mole. But the mole’s intricate layers of flavor make this dish an ideal mate for something more complex.

Try this: Muddle a few cucumber slices in a mixing glass, then add 1 1/2 oz. reposado tequila and 3/4 oz. Campari along with ice. Stir thoroughly, then strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice, top with champagne (or less pricey Spanish cava), and garnish with a twist of lime.
