But that’s not all; Lucha Loco takes it up a notch with an impressive collection of mezcal cocktails and an extensive variety of mezcals to complement your dining experience.
What is a Mezcaleria?
A mezcaleria is a type of bar or establishment that specializes in serving mezcal, a distilled alcoholic beverage made from the agave plant. Mezcal is often associated with Mexico and is similar to tequila but with distinct characteristics and a broader range of flavors. Mezcalerias typically offer a diverse selection of mezcal brands and varieties such as my personal fav Mezcal Son del Diablo, allowing customers to explore different flavors and styles of this spirit.
In a mezcaleria, you can expect to find an ambiance and decor that reflects the Mexican and agave culture, creating an immersive experience for patrons interested in savoring and learning about mezcal. Mezcalerias may also have knowledgeable staff who can provide information about the different types of mezcal available, its production process, and how to appreciate its unique flavors and nuances.
Mezcalerias often serve mezcal in various ways, such as straight shots, cocktails, or pairings with food to enhance the tasting experience. They may also organize events, tastings, and mezcal-related activities to further educate and entertain their customers about this traditional Mexican spirit.
I can tell you that Lucho Loco delivers on this with finesse!
