I personally LOVE Mezcal. A lot of my friends have been unfamiliar with Mezcal and how it differentiates from Tequila. Both are distilled from the Agave plant but prepared differently. Tequila is made from steaming the agave whereas Mezcal chars the Agave giving in the smoky almost scotch like quality. I love the smoke that you get from a good Mezcal and think it pairs very well with spice so decided to try a Jalapeño infused Mezcal. Later put to use in a Spicy Mezcal Mule.
