La Mezcalera

The La Mezcalera boarders one of many small parks in Oaxaca centro. Near Tempo de Santo Domingo, a church known for its Agave plaza.  This area is very popular with young people but none seem to be trying to crash the Mezcal bars.

To date the Mezcal I enjoyed here was the smoothest I have enjoyed in Oaxaca.  The waiter called it a Mixes  just as the bottle it was poured from noted.  He wasn't sure how many different varieties of Mezcal it took to make up such a smooth taste but for sure Espadin was the backbone of this Mezcal.

Here you didn't buy Mezcal by the brand you bought it by the type of agave and herb .  Evidently the Mezcal here is mainly herbal in nature.  Various grasses, herbs and leaves are mixed to make a Mezcal that is evidently good for you and for whatever ails you.  The waiter spoke very little English  in my translator wouldn't much use either because much of the ingredients used to produce their type of Mescale was uniquely native and difficult to comprehend for this gringo.  But I enjoyed it all nonetheless.

Caution: It's said 'for everything there is Mezcal' but we add 'except for one thing' - getting drunk. Please drink responsibly. The most accurate and dependable book on living life at its fullest says 'wine (or Mezcal) makes the heart rejoice' and 'makes life enjoyable' (Ps 104:15; Ec 10:19) but overindulgence can certainly lead to harm (Pr 23:29-31)! If you drink at all please drink in moderation! (Quotes from NWT)
