Drink Forget Everything You Knew About Tequila
In the Marais district of Paris there is an enchanting little bar with Parisian-Bohemian-styled Mexican influenced décor. Miniature pinatas and plastic cactus seem to be set in conversational arrangements with colorful Dia de los Muertos paper dolls and sugar skulls. Mezcal is served straight up or in cocktails accentuated with herbs, citrus and spice. There’s a low percussive rhythm of an indistinguishable but unmistakably Latin beat.This delightful collision of culture affirms my belief that mezcal is the next big thing in the cocktail scene. The smoky elixir, Tequila’s lesser known sibling, has at long last made her debut into mixology society and if you haven’t yet been introduced to her heady aroma, come see me at the bar when you’re here.
