Viva Mezcal / $80
Mezcal is an ancient spirit made from agave that is primarily made in the beautiful city of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Viva Mezcal explores some of those qualities through 50 cocktail recipes you can make at home as well as tasting notes for nearly every brand available in the US. This special leather-bound edition of the book adds even more appeal, bound by hand and perfect for a prime spot in your library.
