Mezcal

Bottle of mezcal for cocktail recipes

Mezcal, like tequila, is a spirit made from agave. The name comes from the Nahuatl word mexcalli, meaning “overcooked agave.” Yum!

Agave for mezcal is smoked to produce a rich flavor that separates it from tequila. Mezcal is to tequila as scotch is to whiskey, you could say.

And before you ask – no, it does not contain mescaline. It’s potent enough as-is! Steer clear of bottles with a worm or scorpion at the bottom; it’s a gross novelty that does not usually bode well for the quality of the spirit.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
