Tequila is more than a distilled spirit. It’s a cultural icon of Mexico. Celebrated in Mexican art, books and film, Tequila is one of the most internationally recognized flavors of Mexico. Its less well-known cousin, mezcal, is an equally important part of the Mexican cultural landscape. Often associated with “the worm,” mezcal’s spiritual and medicinal powers are revered throughout the Oaxacan villages where it is produced.
According to Mexican and U.S. law, tequila and mezcal can only be manufactured in Mexico. Fortunately, you don’t have to look any farther than Rosa Mexicano’s cocktail menu to enjoy them.
