This Episode's Cast of Characters
Have you ever wanted to listen to two guys try a bunch of different types of tonic water, decide which one tasted the best, and then use that same tonic to make two drinks? If the answer is a resounding “yes!” then this episode is for you, weirdo.
Based on a description of a particular mezcal that said it had gin like flavours, the Gents set out to see how a gin and tonic compared to a mezcal and tonic.
The classic gin and tonic is an almost perfect cocktail. It’s refreshing and has a lot of interesting flavours. You all know what it tastes like. It’s great!
Gin and Tonic
1 1/2 ounces gin
In a tall glass filled with ice cubes pour in the gin then top with the tonic. Garnish with the lime wedge.
This cocktail tastes so good and more than makes up for it’s lack of photographic appeal. Looks like a glass of water doesn’t it?
So then the real test. Does Pierce Almas mezcal have enough gin like qualities to make a mezcal and tonic comparable to a gin and tonic? The short answer is yes. The long answer is in the actual episode. You’re going to listen, right?
Mezcal and Tonic
1 1/2 ounces Pierde Almas Mezcal
In a tall glass filled with ice cubes, pour in the mezcal then top with the tonic. Garnish with the lime wedge.
Hmmm. Looks like another glass of water, but tastes like something else. It’s Ginny but definitely Mezcally too. If you’ve never tried mezcal, this is a great way to introduce it to your mouth!
Please give them them both a try soon!
