MEZCAL EL SILENCIO Cocktails for National Tequila Day

Mezcal Margarita 2

Did you know tequila is actually a mezcal, not the other way around, like most people think? National Tequila Day is Wednesday, July 24th so we invite you to switch up your usual cocktail coverage this year with a smoky twist from Mezcal El Silencio!

Check out some Margarita and Paloma recipes that replace the tequila with everyone’s new favorite agave spirit, mezcal.  Or, if you’re only into tequila cocktails, check out a brand new cocktail that includes both mezcal and tequila – the Paloma Spritz – on the menu at Venice’s newest restaurant and bar, The Pier House, for a beachy take on the classic Paloma.
