Welcome to a vibrant journey of taste, tradition, and tequila's smoky cousin, mezcal. Today, we're diving into the heart of Oaxaca with a cocktail that embodies the spirit of Mexico with a fruity twist—the Peach Mezcalita. Crafted with Mezcalum, our signature mezcal, this drink is not just a beverage; it's an experience.

What's the Story Behind the Peach Mezcalita?

The Mezcalita is a contemporary twist on the classic Margarita, substituting tequila with mezcal for a smoky depth. The addition of peach juice infuses a sweet, fruity complexity, creating a balanced cocktail that's both refreshing and rich. The Peach Mezcalita stands out for its unique blend of flavors, a testament to the versatility of mezcal. Mezcalum, with its artisanal heritage and commitment to authenticity, elevates this drink into a celebration of Mexican culture and craftsmanship.

What Makes Our Peach Mezcalita Unique?

Ingredients: The Soul of the Cocktail

  • Mezcalum: Our mezcal is the heart of this cocktail. Distilled from the finest Espadin and Cuishe agave, it brings a smoky elegance.
  • Peach Juice: Adds a velvety, sweet layer, complementing the mezcal's complexity.
  • Triple Sec: A touch of citrusy sweetness to balance the smokiness.
  • Lime Juice: Freshly squeezed to add brightness and acidity.
  • Honey: Used 'measured with the heart', it introduces a natural sweetness that ties all flavors together.
  • Rim: Dipped in honey, then coated with Tajin and adorned with peach and lime slices for an eye-catching presentation.

Craftsmanship: The Art Behind the Bottle

Mezcalum isn't just any mezcal. Our Maestro Mezcalero, Carlos Méndez Blas, brings generations of wisdom to every bottle. From the sun-drenched valleys of Oaxaca, our mezcal is a testament to tradition, made from agave that matures over decades and distilled using time-honored methods.
