Sotol


If you are looking for something exotic to drink then you have come to the right place. Like Tequila and Mezcal, Sotol is distilled from a plant in the agave family, the Desert Spoon, whichgrow mainly in the Chihuahua and Sonora deserts of northern Mexico. Although, this northern Mexican spirit does not enjoy the popularity of Tequila. However, the some people find the earthy flavor a comparable alternative. Tequila’s “peppery” taste gives was to a “grassy” organic flavor. Classified with the same categories as Tequila, an añejo will be more smooth than the reposado.

How to Drink Sotol:

If you are trying as something new and different then it does not make much sense to mask the flavors in a mixed drink. Drink it straight, chilled or on the rocks.

Once you have had a try, if you want to mix up a drink with it , give a classic margarita made with Sotol a try.

Margarita

1 1/2 oz Sotol
1/2 oz  Triple Sec
1 oz Lime Juice

Quick and easy.Server it on the rock or if you like it frozen just put it all in a blender with some ice. You can add some salt to the rim of your glass.
