Meridian Global Young Professionals: “Everything but the Worm” Mezcal Tasting

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Dallas has a new bar in town and it ain’t your average cocktail bar—Las Almas Rotas is Dallas’s first mezcaleria, serving fine Mexican spirits, specifically, Mezcal—and it is the host to our Meridian Mezcal Tasting Party on October 18th!

Mezcal is a distilled spirit, and can be made from 30 varieties of agave or maguey. Tequila, on the other hand is only made from blue agave, specifically.

Come learn about this artisanal Mexican spirit that has inspired a growing craft-cocktail movement closely trailing it’s cousin, tequila. That’s right folks, mezcal no longer has the reputation of being the gimmicky bottle with a worm in it—it is a fine Texas trend worth toasting to!

Agave aficionado or not, we invite you to join us for the most delicious and comprehensive mezcal tasting party this side of the Rio Grande!

Give it a “shot”—you won’t regret it!

Each mezcal tasting party ticket is $45 and includes:

  • A welcome cocktail—House Margarita
  • Chips, Salsa Verde, Guacamole, Chicharron de Queso
  • Mezcal Flights & Education—1/2 oz. pours
    mezcal varieties—Espadin, Tobala, Cupreata, Mexicano, Madre-Cuisse
  • Dinner—1 sope & 2 tacos
    *guest choice of fillings (arrachera, barbacoa, al pastor, carnitas, pollo or veggies)
  • Dessert—Coco Andre hand-crafted chocolate & 1.2 oz. mezcal dessert pairing
