Del Maguey Vida and Bozal Ensamble are great for mixing. The Vida is way more smokey, whlie the bozel ensamble is just delicious.

For Tequila, try some Fortaleza, G4 or Ocho.

Gin? Well the world is your oyster. So many delicious things happening there, especially on the floral end of things.
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.
