March 25, 2021 | Author: Ashley McCrary

A smokey and balanced cocktail filled with Mezcal, passion fruit puree, lemon juice, Ancho Reyes and finsihed with a orange slice and rimmed with smoked salt.

Mezcal Tini Cocktail

Recently, my husband and I visited one of our favorite places at Big Cedar Lodge, Top of The Rock. We attended their Cocktails in The Kitchen class and learned all about Mezcal. Additionally, we even got to make a Mezcal Tini Cocktail. Top of The Rock’s mixoligist was so kind to share the recipe and even gave me their handmade smoked salt. So, if there is one new cocktail to try, this is it. This cocktail has easily become my new go-to because it’s so unique.

Tips and Tricks for this Mezcal Tini Cocktail

  • Use fresh lemon juice and not the fake stuff. It makes a big difference in the ending taste of the drink.
  • Always add ice to the shaker before shaking. The makes the drink a thousand times better.
  • Buy high quilaty Mezcal. Below are my favorite brands that are qulaity and affordable:
    • El BuHo
    • Banhez Mezcal
    • Fidencio Classico
    • El Silencio Espadín
    • Montelobos Mezcal Joven
  • Mezcal has a nice smokey tate, so riming the glass with smoke salt, really takes this drink over the top.

What is Mezcal Montelobos?

According to The Rum Howler Blog, “Montelobos Mezcal Joven is an artisanal mezcal made in Santiago Matatlán Oaxaca. The spirit is crafted by Montelobos agave expert Iván Saldaña according to his vision and passion for agave and with respect for traditional production methods. Montelobos which means mountain of wolves is an unaged mezcal produced from 100 % organic Highland Espadin agave (sourced in Santiago Matalán Oaxaca).

Montelobos Mezcal Joven is described upon the label as an Artesanel Mezcal which means, that it must adhere to the following production techniques:

Cooking: Agave piñas must be cooked in underground pits or above ground masonry ovens.

Milling: Wooden mallet, tahona, Chilean/Egyptian mill, cane press, or chipper.

Fermentation: Fermentation is performed in rock pits, in-ground pits, tree trunks, clay urns, wooden vats, or animal hide. The fermentation may include agave fibers.

Distillation: Distillation has to be fueled by direct fire beneath a boiler of either copper or clay. The head or “hat” of the still may be made of clay, wood, copper, or stainless steel.”

How is Mezcal Different from Tequila?

Although these two may look the same, they do have differences. Mezcal has a nice smokey flavor compared to tequila. While the two Mexican spirits are both made from agave, that’s where the similarities end. Tequila is typically produced by steaming the agave inside industrial ovens before being distilled two or three times in copper pots. Mezcal, on the other hand, is cooked inside earthen pits that are lined with lava rocks and filled with wood and charcoal before being distilled in clay pots.

What is Ancho Reyes Liquor?

Ancho Reyes is based on a 1927 recipe from Puebla, a town in Mexico known for its ancho chiles, which are dried and smoked poblanos. The liqueur is a tasty addition to classic cocktails like the Margarita, Daiquiri or Paloma, or it can be used in original concoctions. (According to Liquor.com)

In conclusion, if you are looking for a new cocktail that has a unique flavor, this one is for you. The smokey flavor mixed with the passion fruit puree makes it explod with flavor. Not only is it a great drink in general, but it will add a great touch to your next date night.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
