A Mezcal Drink for the Flu-Ridden Masses

Let's say you're a drink nerd who has the flu. You want to work mezcal into your schedule but how can you justify it when you're sweating through your sheets and spending all day watching soap operas?

Houston Eaves, of Esquire Tavern in San Antonio, has the answer. In my lastest recipe post I list his recipe for the Espadin Tea. It's a lot like a Hot Toddy using tea and Licor 43 as a sweetener.

The drink calls for mezcal (I'm sure whisky would also work), lemon, Licor 43, and hot tea.


Go get the recipe at FineCooking and make yourelf feel better.

That 43 is all over the place the last couple of months, isn't it?

This sounds good. I was really into Licor 43 about a year ago, but haven't used it in a long time. This warm treatment sounds like a good reason to break it out again. Perfect for the bitter cold that's settled into the east this week.
