The sunsets in Oaxaca are the best in Mexico, which is why we designed a cocktail that could elicit the memories and feelings of a beautiful Oaxacan sunset.
All of the unique colors in the sky––which we pay tribute to in this beverage––reminds us of the experiences from Guelaguetza, a traditional Oaxacan festival that begins in the month of July.
While the pineapple provokes memories of the regional dances of Tuxtepec.
The blending of mezcal, which is native to Oaxaca, combined with the freshness of mint leaves us astonished at every sip, just like a Oaxacan sunset.¡Salud!
Oaxacan Sunset Cocktail
Prep Time: 4 minutes
Yields: 1 cocktail
40 ml mezcal
30 ml pineapple and mint syrup
Top off with seltzer water
Preparing the pineapple and mint syrup
In a blender, add 300 grams of pineapple, 10 mint leaves and 150 grams of sugar. Grind together.
Strain the mixture and set it aside for later use.
Preparing the Oaxacan sunset cocktail
Use an old fashioned glass.
Use the dry shake method.
In a shaker, place all the ingredients (except for the cubed ice and seltzer water) and shake until the beverage is cold.
With the help of a strainer, empty the mixture into a glass.
Add your cubed ice and seltzer water until the glass is full. Mix together with a spoon.
Serve in the glass and decorate with a dried pineapple and pineapple stalks.
