Night 2 of your amazing Oaxaca sours. I love the smokiness, but if it is too much, just add an extra oz. Of pineapple juice to soften.
Our new favorite cocktails.
Sounds good, thanks David!
YESSSSS, I made this. Loved the smokiness of the simple syrup. Got me to try different mezcals. Fun, delicious. I remember this episode as you and your friends looked to be having a VERY good time.
BTW, which mezcal do you like ??
400 conejos is a great one, but when it comes to mezcal I try to be adventurous 🙂
Saw the episode and made a note to try this with the bottle of Mezcal from a trip to Oxaca. This was the perfect drink to make. Delicious, Happy Anniversary to us!!
So glad you enjoyed this cocktail Julie, Happy Anniversary!
Just watched this episode and looking forward to making this over the weekend. Will give me time to make the chipotle simple syrup
I hope you enjoyed the cocktail Thomas 🙂
Love this cocktail ! Fresh lime juice is the key 😅
So glad you liked it Karen!
Just saw a rerun of this show. Cant wait to try this. My husbsnd and i love Oaxaca and Mezcal. Missing Day of the Dead Crlebrations this year due to Covid.
We all miss Oaxaca!
This looks really good, i love lime drinks.
This was amazing. My Mom does not drink but once a year she will drink this on Mother’s Day. I made it both with mezcal and with tequila. She liked the tequila best. I liked the mezcal but Mom gets to choose. Thank you for making something she likes. 🙂
Aw, you guys are so sweet, glad Mom approves 😉
Patti, I would love to know the BRAND of Mezcal that you used on this show. I love trying out different liquors and really would love to know the name of the mescal. 5 de Mayo is around the corner!!
Always enjoy watching your shows.
I used a brand called Wahaka Mezcal. I hope you enjoy the cocktail, Alma!
The smokiness of the mescal and the simple syrup make these very, very special. Just did day drinking with my lady friends and this cocktail gave us hope of spring in Chicago!!
Awesome!!! I’m so glad you and your lady friends had fun, Anne!
I had a piece go sour from Peru and it was to die for absolutely delicious I don’t drink tequila or miss gu I had a piece go sour from Peru and it was to die for absolutely delicious
If mezcal is anything like tequila I will pass
Oh I’m sorry to hear you don’t enjoy tequila, Rose.
I recently found this old adage in a guidebook to Oaxaca that I know you’ll like. “Para todo mal, Mezcal; para todo bien, tambien.” Salud!
Thanks for the recipe, looked so good.
Enjoy the Oaxacan Sours, Danny!
Super! Thank you!
Pati, I am your biggest fan, especially since I got to visit Oaxaca in February. Next Saturday, I am making your Oaxacan chicken, Rick Bayless’s Yucatan Cochinita Pibil and your Mezcal sours with the mezcal I brought all the way to Montana. Luckily I was able to find a dried Chipotle chili at Lucky’s Market. But how did you make the simple syrup? I know you didn’t leave the chili in the sugar water very long, but don’t remember how long.
Can’t wait for my Cinco de Mayo party on Saturday with your chicken and drinks.
Here’s the recipe: https://patijinich.com/pati_2020/recipe/chipotle-simple-syrup/ Have a great Cinco de Mayo party, Jennifer!
I believe this is one of your best episodes. So cool to visit with the entire family to tell their story. Outstanding Pati!
Thank you Dan!

What is the brand name of the family’s mezcal brand and is it available in the US?
Oh I visited Wahaka Mezcal in Oaxaca…you can check online where to find their products.
Did you use the Wahaka mezcal for the Oaxacan Sour, or did you use a different brand?
Oh you can use any of your favorite brands Megan…and it will turn out delicious!
