This week on the Bit by a Fox Podcast we are talking all things Mezcal – the wild and smoky, and often misunderstood cousin of tequila.
Leading Bar Caló’s mezcal heavy bar program, which features over seventy different mezcals Mfocused on small producers and Mexican owned palenques, has made a mezcal expert out of Jeremy, as well as a passionate advocate of small batch agriculture and time-honored traditional techniques.
This week’s featured cocktail is Jeremy Simpson’s Aqua del Rancho currently featured at Bar Caló in Los Angeles:
Open Topo Chico, dump out 2 1/2 ounces, in the bottle add 1/2 ounce of fresh lime juice, 2 ounces of mezcal, 4-5 dashes of cherry bitters, add mint garnish and long straw, and enjoy!
