Description

Artisanal Mezcal follows a delicate underground baking process that has existed for hundreds of years, but it is only now that it’s experiencing a Renaissance in craft cocktail bars and homes around the country.

Made from agave, but so much more than tequila, Mezcal’s smoky flavor and smooth finish—as well as its artisanal, farm-to-table background—has made it the new “spirit du jour.” This book contains 50 cocktail recipes you can make at home with delicious, versatile out-of-this world Mezcal, containing information about how this small-batch liquor is made by Oaxacan families, and will include tasting notes on almost every brand available in the US.
