Verde Momento is made with 8 year old agave Espadin by mezcalero Doroteo Garcia in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. The agaves are cooked in an underground oven using ocote, holm oak, and peppertree which give the mezcal a smokiness desirable for cocktails. After cooking for about 5 days, the agaves are tahona-crushed before being put into 1,500 liter fermentation vats. The natural fermentation can last from 7 to 30 days depending on the production season, the amount of rain, and variations in temperature. Finally, it is doubled distilled in a 500 liter copper still. This mezcal is has notes of grass, soft smoke, and fresh peach.
Sweet with candied nuts and dried fruit.
Mezcal Margarita Recipe (aka Mezcalita)
There's no surprise that Margaritas are one of the world's favourite cocktail recipes, with all it's various versions and adaptations. If you love smokey flavours, you're gonna love the Mezcal Margarita (aka Mezcalita). If you're reading this and wondering what is mezcal, let us quickly fill you in. Mezcal is a type of alcohol made from the agave plant. Here’s an interesting fact: tequila is mezcal, but not all mezcal is tequila. Tequila is made from only one type of agave plant (blue agave), but mezcal can be made from 11 different varieties of agave. The biggest difference between them is that for mezcal, the agave is cooked in pits in the ground. This is what gives it that signature smoky flavour! All the same rules apply here - you can be as creative as you like with swapping your fruits for quirky and fun flavours (Jalapenos maybe, as so many of you love a spicy marg, so not create your own Spicy Mezcal Margarita?!)
