For those connoisseurs of fine tequila, ready for a change from the Patron batch, try Los Amantes Mezcal. It’s a smoky blend, aged (x three time distilled) and perfect for sipping after dinner.  It settles the score with your stomach after a few too many chips.

You can find this gorgeous drink at my favorite Mexican restaurant in New York: Cafe El Portal (174 Elizabeth Street between Kenmare and Spring) and it’s sister joint: Xicala Wine & Tapas Bar (151B Elizabeth St) is known to have a nice selection of wines + spirits. The bottle was created by up & comer, Guillermo Olguin, a respected Mexican artist from Oaxaca.  (related I Loved New York pieces: Cafe El Portal)
