What do you know about Mezcal? Maybe you have some vague idea about its relationship to agave, or that there might be a worm at the bottom of the bottle. You may know that tequila is a type of mezcal, or that mezcal is more intensively handcrafted than almost any other spirit, making it a true farm-to-table drink. Or perhaps you’ve heard tell of its hallucinogenic property—which is apocryphal, just so you know. At the end of the day, you probably don’t know that much about it, but if you’ve ever tried it then you know one thing for certain: its smoky, complex flavor is irresistible. And this fact alone is responsible for its recent stateside spike in popularity; but don’t worry, the train hasn’t left the station yet! Mezcal Cocktails will make you an expert on the beverage before there’s a Mezcal bar on every city corner. If the 2010s belonged to artisan absinthe cocktails, the 2020s are sure to be the age of agave!

- the Mezcal Negroni - the Cactus Flower - Mezcalita - Oaxaca Old Fashioned - Killer Bee - Marrakesh Express
Plus, easy recipes for gorgeous craft cocktail ingredients, from syrups to garnishes! Though it isn’t as ubiquitous as vodka or whiskey, mezcal is actually very easy to work with, as its flavor pairs beautifully with so many ingredients! Bartender Emanuele Mensah shares the rich and fascinating history of mezcal and tequila, all while making mezcal the go-to staple of your home bar.
