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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
