  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. I believe this is one of your best episodes. So cool to visit with the entire family to tell their story. Outstanding Pati!
