We’re approaching Christmas quickly, and today we are making our first hot cocktail of the year. This is the Spicy Santa, a Cocktail Detour original, inspired by several other hot chocolate cocktails out there.
We created a Tonic Margarita. There is a noticeable difference between tequila and mezcal. The latter one has more of a smoky profile, not completely unlike a smoky whisky. It’s a really good cocktail ingredient which this particular drink proves.
We used honey from Sweden. And that’s one of the things we think is so awesome with cocktails. Ingredients from totally different parts of the world can be mixed into the same glass, and create something amazing.
Mezcal is so good! We can’t get enough of that smokiness, that really comes through also in this cocktail. It’s a very sophisticated spirit that everyone definitely should try, especially tequila lovers.
Unusual cocktail ingredients is always fun. In the Domo Arigato by Ran Duan there is sesame oil . . . and it’s paired with mezcal! Check out this awesome recipe.
Thanks to the Aperol this cocktail gets a very appealing orange/pink color. The taste however is more dominated by the smoky mezcal, a spirit that we love, so this is definitely our type of cocktail.
A fresh and slightly unusual cocktail. Perfect to sip outdoors.
A cocktail with a chili kick! And an interesting flavour combination of pineapple and rosemary.
This could very well be one of the most beautiful cocktails we have ever shaken.

We discovered mezcal this year and it's one of our favorite spirits (even competing with gin). A late fall afternoon we wanted to make a cocktail containing mezcal and some fresh organic grapefruit we had in the fridge. So, the perfect opportunity to do a Mezcal...
