Most Popular Mezcal Cocktails

Most Popular Mezcal Cocktails

Mezcal is a type of spirit that is traditionally made from the agave plant in Mexico. It has a distinct smoky flavor, which is a result of the roasting process that the agave hearts go through before they are distilled. Mezcal is often compared to tequila, which is also made from agave, but while tequila can only be made from blue Weber agave in specific regions of Mexico, mezcal can be made from a variety of agave species and in different regions of the country. Mezcal can be enjoyed neat, but it is also used as a key ingredient in a wide range of cocktails.

Master The Classics: Harvey Wallbanger

The Harvey Wallbanger is said to have been invented in 1952 by three time world champion bartender Donato “Duke” Antone at the Blackwatch Bar in Los Angeles. That said, recent reasearch by cocktail writer Robert Simonson indicated that this is probably NOT the genesis of this particular cocktail. Firstly there is no verifiable evidence that a bar called the Blackwatch ever existed and according to Simonson’s research, Antone was living in Connecticut in the time period the drink was supposedly created. Other historians such as David Wondrich posit that it was possibly the marketing team of the McKesson Import Company that have credit for the drink’s creation. In the 1960’s they created a “Harvey Wallbanger” Sandal clad surfer mascot to promote the drink and it is known that a McKesson executive named George Bednar was instrumental in promoting the drink as a means of increasing sales of Galliano. So there you have it, everything we know about the Harvey Wallbanger! Enjoy the drink or at least the video of the drink!

3 Hot Toddy Recipes - Scotch, Rum, & Mezcal!

3 Hot Toddy Recipes – Scotch, Rum, & Mezcal!

Today I’m showing you three different recipes for the Hot Toddy! The toddy is a style of drinks that predates the cocktail (it’s super old). Original recipes were served both hot and cold, and consisted of a base spirit, sugar, and water. Since then, recipes have evolved to include teas, citrus, and spices. It seems everyone has a go-to recipe, so I thought I’d share mine along with a couple of variations – all tasty, all comforting. Hope you’re all enjoying the new year! Stay cozy, everyone. Cheers!
