Thinking of Drinking: Holy Mole

Casa Oaxaca honors the unique taste of the Agave based spirits through a refreshing selection of Mezcal and Tequila cocktails you have never tried before.  We got a taste of all the offerings.  Holy Mole is similar to a Manhattan, but uses Mezcal and a delicious mole bitters. 

Holy Mole
2 oz Ilegal Reposado Mezcal
3/4 oz sweet vermouth
1/4 oz Green Chartreuse
5 drops mole bitters

Stir, strain, and serve up in a chilled cocktail glass.

You can also try:

MEXICO QUERIDO. Mezcal Ilegal Joven/Benedictine/lemon juice/jalapeños/celery bitters   $12
SPICY CUCUMBER MARGARITA. Tequila Sauza Silver/lemon juice/agave nectar/serranos/ mint/cucumber $10 (my favorite)

WANNABE MEXICAN. Tequila Sauza Silver/St Germain licquor/ guanabana juice $10

Enjoy any of these original cocktails either at the bar or at your table and get ready for an authentic Mexican cultural experience. Summer is here, there’s no better time to enjoy the Spirits of Mexico!
