Vamonos Riendo Mezcal Stirs Up Oaxacan Margaritas for National Margarita Day

Vamonos Riendo Mezcal switches out the ol’ tequila with this award-winning agave spirit. Margaritas were lauded as the most popular cocktail of 2020 – “foolproof” for the home bartender (aka all of us in the pandemic!) With a new year, it’s time to be “out with the old, and in with the new”! Shake things up for this National Margarita Day (February 22nd).

Vamonos Riendo Mezcal

A fresh, vibrant and bright mezcal, Vamonos Riendo Mezcal is unlike any other product in the market. It boasts fresh fruit, honey and herbal aromas rounded out by a subtle smokiness. When used in a margarita it adds delicate layers of complexity to the cocktail. Bartender Carlos Rosas from Oaxaca’s Pitiona restaurant recommends:

About Vamonos Riendo Mezcal

Vamonos Riendo Mezcal

Vamonos Riendo is an artesanal mezcal that brings together ancient techniques and artistry from multiple Oaxacan communities, to create an extraordinary handcrafted spirit.

Experience our fresh fruit, honey and herbal aroma with a subtle black oak smokiness. On the palate, taste a medley of melon, pineapple, grapefruit and mandarin balanced by the sweetness of cocoa with notes of mint and anise. Long velvety smooth finish of caramel with a tantalizing citrus bite.

About Pitiona

Pitiona is the name of one of the emblematic herbs of Oaxacan cuisine that cooks know well and with which they prepare mole de iguana or seafood broth on the coast. Its flavor is similar to that of guava, but with a “spicy” taste. Pitiona is also the name of one of the most important restaurants in the state capital, whose guide, chef José Manuel Baños, seeks to convey through his dishes the love and devotion he feels for his land. His recipes are a journey through the cuisine of the entire state, from the Mixteca, through the Central Valleys, to the coast where he grew up; gastronomy that expresses the richness of the beautiful Oaxacan coast, the fields and the extensive mountains.

Oaxaca is a region full of subtleties and secrets, its history superimposes layers of flavors that are amalgamated in its fruits and dishes, many of which would have disappeared long ago if it were not for the markets, authentic racks of an invaluable heritage, ingredients that are the principle of magic which, in experienced hands, will appear on the table in unsuspected recipes.
