This Wednesday, December 18th at 7 p.m., Chef Walter Manzke's Petty Cash Taqueria will have a special mezcal tasting with the charming Cecilia Rios Murrieta of La Niña del Mezcal. For $30, you can taste her current product line including varietals of mezcal not yet available in the U.S. Murrieta will be pouring pechuga(triple-distilled with a Turkey breast and a mixture of seasonal fruits, including plums, prunes, tejocotes, apples, cinnamon, cloves and more!), primario (40 proof espadin), tobala, and madrecuixe.
The exciting thing about mezcal for me are the diverse expressions of the many agaves used in the mezcal region, and even those outside the Denomination of Origin.
I met Cecilia at an event in L.A. and then sipped the night away in Toluca back in June at Chef Pablo Salas' Amaranta on her sublime madrecuixe mezcal--I was hooked.
Petty Cash Taqueria, on behalf of Chef Walter Manzke; and bartenders Julian Cox, Nick Meyers, and Danielle Cadena, is proud to present this first event in our series of agave spirit tastings.
There will be food available from a selection of Chef's Favorites to sustain your evening's libations Cecilia will be there to talk, mezcal, Oaxaca, and agave with you over memorable drinks of her signature line of agave spirits--come meet the new face of mezcal: La Niña!
A Night in Oaxaca with La Niña del Mezcal ($30 per person for mezcal tasting only)
