Looking for a way to take your brunch game to the next level? Give the Mezcal Michelada a try. This spicy, smokey and tangy beer cocktail is the perfect compliment to any breakfast. Beer, lime, hot sauce and mezcal, what more is there to say?
Although gin is my truest love, I have been fixated on both tequila and Mezcal lately. There is something about margaritas and tequila-based cocktails that beckon the arriving of summer, and this one is hard to resist.
The Molegroni is inspired by one of my favorite dishes on the planet, mole. Dark, bitter, savory, its a a highly complex sauce made from nuts, bread, chiles, fruit, cinnamon, spices, and chocolate, and is typically made from over 20 ingredients! Built on the bitter backbone of the Campari, this drink has the 5 major flavors found in a traditional mole: chile, sour, sweet, spice, and the "thickener" from the walnuts.
We've taken the classic Old Fashioned south of the boarder with this 'nuevo' twist. The Mezcal Antiquo Fashioned swaps the bourbon or rye found in a typical Old Fashioned for smokey mezcal and resposado tequila. Garnish this drink with a charred jalapeno and you've got a refined fiesta in a glass.
