Mezcal, whose word comes from the Nahuatl mexcalli, which means “heart of the maguey”, is a distillate of the maguey or agave like tequila but with some differences in its preparation. One of the states with the highest and oldest tradition in mezcal production is Oaxaca and the legend says that it came from a ray sent by the gods while an agave was being mashed.
In the Mil Amores, you can enjoy and taste the best mezcal from different regions of the country, accompanied by a unique joy that floods the place. Its typical Mexican decor with a retro touch makes you feel at home to enjoy and practice your dance moves. Try the xoconostle cocktail, a fresh mezcal drink.
At nightfall, and after some mezcals, even if you do not know how to dance, you can set free your inner dancer: there you can practice with anyone since at that time they play music like cumbia or salsa that can make everybody move.
If after all that dancing you’ve built an appetite, you can get the typical quesadillas or -why not- be brave and try the typical chapulines (grasshoppers) that come as a perfect snack with mezcal.
It’s worth taking a quick look at their facebook page as they often have weekdays promos on their drinks and food.
Come and say before a toast “Para todo mal, mezcal; para todo bien, también; si no hay remedio, nos tomamos litro y medio.” Enjoy.
