Welcome to a vibrant journey through taste and tradition with Mezcalum, where we're about to shake up your cocktail repertoire with a sensational twist on a classic Mexican cocktail - the Cantarito. But this isn't just any Cantarito; it's a Mezcalum Cantarito, infused with the rich, smoky essence of Mezcalum mezcal, a true product of Mexico's Oaxaca region. Before we dive into mixing, let's take a moment to appreciate the roots of this refreshing concoction and what makes our version undeniably unique.

What's the Story Behind Cantaritos?

The Cantarito is a beloved cocktail in the heart of Mexico, traditionally served in a clay pot ("cantarito") which is said to enhance its flavors. It's a symphony of citrus and tequila, dancing under the Mexican sun, a drink that captures the essence of festivity, warmth, and community. Historically, it's been a symbol of celebration, shared amongst friends and families during gatherings and fiestas.

Why is the Mezcalum Cantarito Unique?

Our Mezcalum Cantarito pays homage to this rich tradition while carving out its own legacy. By swapping tequila with our meticulously crafted mezcal, we introduce a layer of complexity and depth unparalleled in the cocktail world. Our mezcal's smoky notes, derived from the Espadin and Cuishe agave, handpicked by our Maestro Mezcalero Carlos Méndez Blas, blend harmoniously with the vibrant zest of the drink, creating an experience that's both exhilarating and grounding.

Crafting Your Mezcalum Cantarito

What You'll Need:

  • Grapefruit soda, to top up
  • Ice
  • Salt for the rim (optional)
