Glad I ran into a mezcal fan.

is there a particular Vida you are suggesting?
I was just talking about the del maguey vida, it’s cheap, easily found and tasty. Pretty darn smoky though, so you gotta use it right - can’t just swap out tequila for it in a cocktail.

Have you tried the Fortaleza Still Strength or Terralta 110 (made by the same person as G4/Pasote, just uses different water source) for cocktails?
I have not, but I’ll keep an eye for them. I don’t think I’ve seen either.

It's funny I haven't tried my bottle of vida straight, but maybe I should. The Del Maguey Chichiapa is really nice for sipping as a step up from the vida.

Ancho reyes + mezcal is a great combination.

It's not the most versatile ingredient, but it's really nice in the stuff it works with.

I like the original Ancho Reyes slightly more than the Verde, but the latter is a lot more versatile for cocktails. Adds a nice spicy kick to margaritas and daiquiris, and makes a great mezcal old fashioned.
