Mezcal & Soda
Just came home with a new bottle of mezcal, and want to experience the truest expression of its flavors? Try a Mezcal & Soda! Lengthening the spirit with sparkling soda water helps to elevate the subtler flavor compounds, and the effervescent bubbles lift those same compounds to your nose as you sip.
We’re big fans of this recipe from Supercall, which adds a tiny pinch of salt to the drink. We don’t know exactly why it works; we figure it must potentiate the savory, smoky flavors of a good mezcal.
- 1½ parts Mezcal
- 4 parts Sparkling water
- 1 pinch Salt
Fill a tall glass with ice and build the drink in the order given. Stir gently to combine, and garnish with a wedge or slice of lime, orange, or grapefruit.
