What Im Drinking Summer Mezcal Cocktails

What Im Drinking  Summer Mezcal Cocktails

In terms of how it's made, tequila and mezcal are both made from the pia or heart of the agave. Where the pias destined for tequila get steamed, those mezcal producers roast their pias, giving the spirit its characteristic smoky flavor.

The traditional margarita is the go-to for many cocktail drinkers come summer. While you can add any number of other flavors to it in the form of fresh fruit or purees, sometimes a classic margarita just hits the spot. Bonus? They're easy to batch if you're having friends over.

Having a boozy brunch? Jazz things up with a Bloody Maria. As you've probably guessed, this cocktail is simply a Bloody Mary made with tequila. That said, the tequila flavor really adds an extra punch to this drink, making it a favorite brunch cocktail for many.

2 oz blanco tequila 5 oz tomato juice1 tsp fresh horseradish4 dashes Worchestershire sauce3 dashes Tobasco saucePepper and celery salt to taste½ fresh lime juiceGarnish with celery, lemon wedge, and cocktail olivesYou can use Bloody Mary mix if you must, but making it from scratch will taste much, much better.

This one's easy it's a regular Paloma with mezcal in lieu of tequila. The drink remains refreshing but takes on an extra layer of complexity thanks to mezcal's inherent smokiness. If you want to enhance that flavor, you can coat the rim of your glass with a salt mixed with a little smoked paprika.

If they both come from the same plant, why do they taste so differentTo make tequila, the agave is steamed in above-ground ovens, while mezcal-producing agave is roasted in underground pits filled with stone, mesquite, volcanic rocks, and wood, which give the spirit its signature smoky flavor, explains Maurice DiMarino, wine and beverage manager for the Cohn Restaurant Group. He describes tequila as a cleaner-tasting spirit while mezcal is more earthy and rustic.  Because mezcal has been made for so many years via this old-school roasting method, it's earned the nickname "poor man's tequila," says Boroski. These days, however, you're likely to see it on the bougiest of cocktail menus.  

The most important difference between mezcal and tequila? You simply *do not* do mezcal shots: "Do not disrespect the spirit by shooting it," says DiMarino. Sip on it and enjoy it—or mix it into one of these creative mezcal cocktails instead.

Do you like smoky? then youll love mezcal

Its been a rainy month of May. ut here in Central Texas, we know one thing for sure: this summer will be a scorcher. Theres an easy way to beat the heat and chill out at the same time – a cool cocktail that combines two of the hottest trends for Austins drinkers: hard seltzer and Mezcal.

Among the rows of hard seltzers that have popped up in grocery store coolers, Blue Norther a brand launched in Austin by a father-and-son team who are 7th– and 8th-generation Texans focuses on taste, quality and heritage. We want to share a piece of Austin with folks around the country, and help them experience this great place, co-founder Austin M. Pittman told Tribeza last summer.

What is the best tonic to use with mezcal?

Mezcal is seeing unprecedented popularity at the moment; its being listed in the most exclusive bars worldwide, and for a good reason. The agave spirit is as noble as spirits get, and each bottle has a deep-rooted history in Mexicos culture.

Unlike Tequila, which is exclusively made with blue agave, producers throughout Mexico can produce Mezcal with a wide variety of spiny agaves, some of them only grown in the wild! Just like wine tastes different depending on the grape used to make it, each bottle of Mezcal has a unique personality depending on the cactus used, making each bottle individual in its right.

It comes without saying Mezcals quality is a given, the spirit is protected by law to ensure it's always up to the highest standards. Its quite rare, too, so expect to pay a premium for the most exclusive labels.

The only question is, how to mix Mezcal cocktails? Here are seven fantastic ideas to inspire you, from old-fashioned dry drinks to tropical concoctions. Choose your favorite and join the Mezcal craze!

The secret is the tamarind concentrate, which you can find in any Mexican specialty store. It is used to make sweet Aguas Frescas, or Mexican soft drinks, that go great with the countrys cuisine.

In a thick-bottomed low glass, place a sugar cube, pour in a few dashes of Angostura bitters, and muddle. Add two large ice cubes and top with 2 ounces of Dos Hombres Espadin Mezcal. Gently stir and garnish with an orange peel.

Creamy drinks are trending, and its easy to see why. Whats not to love about a palate-coating creamy and boozy drink? Were using Tejano Imports Mezcal Veras for this one, a bronze medalist at the 2022 Bartender Spirit Awards and the American Somrus Coffee Cream Liqueur.

Another classic cocktail comes to life with the Mezcals vibrant agave flavors for a drink thats as pretty as it is tasty. Did you know the authentic Manhattan Cocktail was created in the early 1880s?

The original Moscow Mule Cocktail was invented in 1941, in Los Angeles British pub Cock ' Bull, and was served in authentic Russian copper mugs. The recipe called for a shot of a then-unknown vodka brand Smirnoff!

Remember when tequila felt dangerous? Meet mezcal, tequilas reckless cousin. You know the one. The one who you hear started smoking at the age of 7. The one who has been tempting you to drink on school nights. A night out with him feels like the best drug trip youve ever been on; it comes on slow and smooth and eases you into a state of pure, ecstatic celebration, leaving you with nothing more in the morning but a slight sense of disbelief. If tequila makes her clothes fall off, mezcal undresses her with his eyes, stripping away her inhibitions and making her beg for more, harder, faster, longer, now.
