What to Serve

Instead of the typical margarita, why not serve a Mezcal cocktail instead? Mezcal is the smokey version of Tequila and is rapidly becoming the It-beverage on the mixology scene. El Silencio Mezcal is one of the best artisanal brands and a great option for those new to the beverage (plus the absence of sulfates means you won't feel any residual effects the morning after—hooray).
