Tequila and Mezcal, two of the most iconic spirits from Mexico, are quickly becoming household names. Made from the juice of the blue agave and the agave plant respectively, both are a testament to the rich cultural heritage of Mexico. Unlike popular belief, tequila and mezcal are meant to be sipped, savored and enjoyed, not just shot.
Tequila, especially the 100% blue agave varieties like Tequila Diamante, are known for their smoothness and versatility. They can be enjoyed alone, as a reposado or añejo, or in a cocktail like the classic margarita. Tequila can also be paired with a variety of cuisines, from Mexican dishes to Iberian hams, making it a versatile addition to any bar.
Mezcal, on the other hand, is known for its smoky and earthy flavors. It is an ideal addition to cocktails that call for a bold, smoky flavor profile. Whether enjoyed alone or in a cocktail, both tequila and mezcal are set to elevate your drinking experience. So next time you're looking for a drink, try one of these iconic spirits and discover the rich cultural heritage of Mexico in a glass.
