1 oz. Cilantro Pepper Infused Blanco Tequila
.75 oz. Monte Alban Mezcal
.5 oz. Blue Agave Syrup
.5 oz. Lime Juice
.25 oz. Sour Rhubarb Liqueur
Sombra Mezcal Rinse for Garnish
Add some spice to your chilly winter nights with a slightly spicy tequila and mezcal cocktail. It’s pronounced [Wa-Ha-Kan]. Oaxaca is the state in Mexico from which mezcal hails. Quite different from other types of tequila, mezcal has a smokier, full-bodied flavor due to its specific process of cooking the heart of the agave plant in a pit oven.
Pairs well with any types of food, but you can’t go wrong having this cocktail with some tacos.
