Winter cocktails at Puesto
Winter cocktails are here!
We’re getting festive at Puesto! We’ve created three delicious winter-inspired cocktails you can enjoy all season long through the end of January.
GIN AND MEZCAL AND JUICE
What’s in it: Mezcal, gin, chamomile, fresh lemon, and egg white.
What’s in it: Blue agave reposado tequila, spiced chocolate & maíz, piloncillo, guanabana liqueur, fresh passionfruit, and fresh lime.
What’s in it: Mezcal añejo, housemade eggnog, roasted corn, and cinnamon.
All three winter cocktails pair well with this month’s taco, which is already a fan favorite.
Taco of the Month
Get your hands on the Duck Carnitas Taco while you can! Created by our Chef Mario Magaña, this taco is filled with duck confit, cilantro chimichurri, black beans, spicy avocado mousse, and pickled red onions.
Waterfowl and the acidic, smoky-heat of Mexican cuisine are having a celebrity wedding atop a blue corn tortilla in this taco, and we’re all saying ‘I do.’ However, duck in Mexican culinary tradition is nothing new. Because Mexico occupies the southern part of the Northern Hemisphere, the country has long reaped the benefits of the southern migration of wildfowl. In fact, game birds were among the most appreciated elements of the pre-Hispanic diet. Today, it’s not uncommon to find a duck confit taco on a menu in Mexico City.
