Let’s toast with mezcal during Mexico’s Fiestas Patrias
“For all bad Mezcal. For all well aswell.”
Have you tried the Mezcal? Yes? Well, let me tell you that you have tasted a pre-Hispanic drink! Currently, thanks to hipsters, mezcal is the latest trend and because of this, we will tell you 5 things that maybe you did not know about mezcal:
- Pre-Hispanic origin
According to the legend, one day a lightning strike on a piece of agave that caused a liquid that would later be known around the world as ‘mezcal’.
- Sips, not shots
The mezcal is not taken as a shot of tequila, but as ‘kisses’. Connoisseurs say that to really taste the mezcal you should take it little by little and accompany it with a slice of orange, bitter chocolate or the traditional worm salt (it does not sound as appetizing but tastes delicious).
- Hangover, What’s that?
Another reason to drink mezcal is that it does not make you ask for mercy the next day due to hangovers. Forget the headache, sensitivity to light and / or sound, thirst, body cut as long as you do not mix drinks.
- A God’s drink
There are several types of agaves but only Espadín and Madrecuixe allow the generation of mezcales of ‘luxury’ since they are cultivated in a regulated manner. The rest of the agaves are considered wild since they are born, grow and reproduce without supervision.
- Healthier than expected
I do not say that mezcal is an effective syrup against all evil, but if you take it in moderation it can be beneficial for your health because it calms the pain, prevents inflammation and how it helps you relax is effective to combat insomnia.
So do not think about it anymore and enjoy the gift that the pre-Hispanic gods have for you.
