The Passion de Oaxaca at Guelaguetza
The drink: Made with Mezcal Tosba, passion fruit, grapefruit and lime, this drink comes in a glass rimmed with Tajín salt. This is just one of the cocktails on Guelaguetza’s mezcal-heavy menu. Co-owner Bricia Lopez, who’s busy promoting everything she loves about Oaxaca, believes they’ve been serving mezcal longer than any other restaurant in LA. In addition to the cocktails, you can also try half-ounce pours of the spirit for a tasting. Soon there will be an entire MezCart roaming the restaurant.
Pair it with: This would be great with any of the moles that Guelaguetza is known for, including the deeply flavored negro mole.
