5 Celebrity-Approved Cocktails for National Mezcal Day

Avatar photo

Mezcal is better and more popular than ever. The smokey cousin to tequila has a taste and aroma that comes from its unique distillation process, resulting in a spirit that teases the palate and the nose.

To celebrate National Mezcal Day on October 21, Dos Hombres Mezcal created five elevated cocktail recipes to highlight the attributes of their mezcal made from Espadin agave, hand-selected from the hillsides of a small village in Oaxaca. Dos Hombres concoctions were liberally served recently at the birthday party for Dos Hombres co-founder Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad, El Camino) at Lavo Ristorante in the private The Fleur Room on West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip.
