Coming soon from our amigos at Dos Amigos Cantina in Mission Bay, the “Electric Mezcal”. Quite simply, a twist on the classic paloma, using Jarritos grapefruit soda, fresh lime and Sacacuento Mezcal anejo. A nice, refreshing drink with a touch of smoke. Salud!
There are a lot of rumors surrounding Mezcal – myths even. They all have the worm, they’re all smokey, etc. Mezcal continues to blow the doors off agave enthusiasts and the mystery of how to best taste Mezcal was covered well by La Urbana’s bar manager Lucas Ranzuglia in a recent article on The Daily Traveler web site titled “Don’t Drink Mezcal Without Reading This First: Tips From a San Francisco Master.”
Mr. Ranzuglia covers six tips on how to approach drinking fine Mezcal.

In 2012, we pulled out our first three espadin agave plants from Rancho Buenaventura to make our 3 Year Aged Sacacuento Mezcal. It was great fun pulling these bad boys out of the ground and we made it a generational affair with four-generations of ranch owners on hand to pull the agave out of the ground.
Enjoy our short video on the process of pulling out the first agave plant with The Mezcal King.
The recipe for the Fresno Margarita is as follows:
- 1 ¾ oz – Sacacuentos Anejo Mezcal
- 2 wheels of Fresno chiles
- 1 sprig of thyme
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- 1 oz simple syrup
Fill glass ¼ of way with cubed ice and place fresno chiles and thyme in glass. Muddle chiles so they start to break down. Pour mezcal, lime juice and simple syrup into glass add ice and shake 5 to 7 times. Pour into glass with salted rim. Add Fresno chile wheel for garnish.
