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:
Fashioned - served in a rocks glass with
2 oz La Niña del Mezcal Espadin
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.
