A Mexican Cocktail Twist


Across Mexico you'll find the delicious fermented pineapple beverage called tepache. But what happens when you turn it into a cocktail? We went to Betony to find out - and bonus points for the fact that if you don't want to make it yourself you can give back. It is the signature cocktail at Taste of the Nation, benefiting No Kid Hungry. If that isn't a winning combo we don't know what is.

To make the Tigrita:


25 ml Mezcal

35 ml Tepache

15 ml Fresh lime juice

15 ml Agave nectar

5 ml Orange oleo saccharum

1 wedge Lime


1. Combine liquid ingredients in the large shaker tin.

2. Fill small tin with cubed ice, shake cold.

3. Fill mule cup with cold ice.

4. Double strain liquid into copper mug.

5. Garnish with lime wedge.
