Hemp Seed Potion
I really enjoy all the different notes you can taste and smell while sipping on this potion. I’m a huge cilantro and basil lover so I absolutely dig the taste of this drink paired with Coconut Mylk, a dream! The Hemp Seeds give the rim an earthy taste that balance the potion out. Feel free to play around with the Jalapeño depending on your love for spice.
Why Mezcal? Over the years I’ve learned to really enjoy it. It is actually one of the healthiest spirits you can drink due to how it’s made with no sugars or fillers, simply made from the Earth. This article on Mezcal is very informative. When drinking Mezcal, Madre Mezcal is always my go-to. Madre comes from a ranch, set in the rolling hills of the Oaxacan Sierra. Watching over the land for centuries, the family started distilling the spirit of mezcal for the intent of personal guidance and celebration.
