Mezcal and Tequila — distilled versions and descendants of a drink called “pulque” that are rooted in mythology and can be traced back to 1,000 A.D. and the Aztecs in what is present-day Mexico. Needless to say, A LOT has happened in this “fiery” spirits category since then, so come join us on Cinco de Mayo eve and let Food & Drink Scholar/Writer/Raconteur Tonya Hopkins guide you through a flight of tasty craft tequilas & mezcals, including a talk on their ancient historic origins. There’ll be special surprise guests and, as always, a seasonal signature cocktail showcasing these “elixirs of the gods”, along with Mexican-inspired nibbles!
