January cocktail: Last of the Oaxacans
- 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.
