Alcoholic Cocktails with Mescal

   Mezcal, a spirit distilled from the agave plant, descends from a drink called pulque made by the Aztecs in Mexico. When the Spaniards arrived in Mexico in the early 16th century, they brought their knowledge of distillation methods, and mezcal was born. Mezcal is primarily made in Oaxaca, which is why bottles of mescal are typically labeled "Mezcal de Oaxaca." The drink, made from the core of the agave plant (called the piña), has a strong, smoky flavor.
   The traditional way to drink mezcal is to knock it back in a shot glass and, if you've reached the end of the bottle, chase it with the worm. However, you may choose to drink it with lemon juice, soda or water. Several cocktails also feature mezcal, such as the mezcal margarita and the mezcal martini. For the mezcal martini, all you need to do is shake mezcal, ice and olives in a martini shaker, strain and enjoy. To make the mezcal margarita, pour about two ounces of mezcal, one ounce of triple sec and two cups of limejuice into a rocks glass filled with ice.
