Bit by a Fox Podcast


Mar 30, 2018

This week we dive into Mezcal, the wild and smoky and often misunderstood cousin of tequila. I spoke with Cecilia Rios Murrieta, founder of Oaxacan brand, La Niña del Mezcal. Cecilia established one of the first blogs about Mezcal and the culture that surrounds it. She is a certified Mezcalier, and a proponent of preserving the traditional production processes of artisan Mezcal. 
 
This week's recipe:
 
Mezcal Old Fashioned  - served in a rocks glass with ice
2 oz La Niña del Mezcal Espadin
Angostura Bitters 
1/2 oz agave syrup
garnish: Orange Peel 
 
Add the agave syrup to your rocks glass, 3-4 dashes of bitters and a large ice cube or a couple of smaller ones. Then pour in about 2 oz mezcal. You can give that a good old stir to make sure everything gets mixed properly and cooled down a bit. Rub the rim of the glass with an orange peel, twist and garnish.
