Now I know.

Well, I know what liquor I don’t like now! The Mezcal was WAY too smoky for me. The other people who tried it didn’t dislike it as much as I did but they didn’t love it either. Maybe it’s an acquired taste. I hate submitting a bad review for a cocktail when really it’s my dislike of the liquor involved but I want to make sure others are aware of the smokiness if they haven’t tried Mezcal before.

Memories of Oaxaca

Mezcal not being exactly a go-to ingredient at my house, I appreciated this fresh take on a margarita. I love the sweetness the pineapple brings, with the smoke from the mezcal and the spice from the salt, this drink brought it all together nicely. What a great use for a great Oaxacan tradition, mezcal.

Para Todo Bien = Muy Bien!

Love to order a mescal based drink every once in a while, and this one hit every flavor I love. The sweetness & smokiness was a perfect balance! Plan to duplicate this drink very soon!

Too "smoky" tasting for my taste buds

I found this drink to be very “smoky” and bitter tasting, even when I added simple syrup. And the chili salt very hot.

Para Todo Bien es mucho delcisioso!

This was a delicious recipe. Very refreshing blend of flavors that developed from sip to swallow. I especially liked the salt/pepper/cilantro rimming blend. I will definitely make this again.

Spicy Sips

Generally liked the drink but found the spicy salted rim overpowered the taste of the cocktail. Upped the mezcal and lime on the second prep and used less salt on the rim. Good drink on a warm afternoon.

Great Combination!

A nice pairing of a base (mezcal) and citrus (line) with a sweet component (pineapple). On our second go round, I backed off on the pineapple syrup a little to make the drink less sweet.

Smoky, and grows on you

Cons: Not a huge fan of the garnish. Overly spicy, but ok in very small amounts. Also the pineapple syrup is very thick, so not as easy to pour/mix as others, but not terrible.

Pros: Great, complex flavor. The contrast of the mescal vs the lime juice is very enjoyable.
