• Finally, there’s mezcal. A smoky liquor made from the heart of the maguey plant, mezcal is tequila’s more sophisticated cousin. Though maguey grows in a few parts of Mexico, most mezcal comes from Oaxaca, where’s they’ve been making it for centuries. The distinctive drink is just starting to become popular in the US, so look for your hip local bar to start carrying it soon!
