Drink This Now: Desolas’ Roasted Yellow Bell Pepper At Coconut Grove’s Mayfair Grill

For those drinkers looking to have their thirst quenched by a spicy and enticing recipe try a Roasted Yellow Bell Pepper featuring Desolas Mezcal, available at the Mayfair Grill’s fountain bar located in the recently reinvented Mayfair House Hotel and Garden. Desolas Mezcal grows in Oaxaca, Mexico, delicately hand crafted from the Salmiana Agave in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, creating a unique, low smoke mezcal with a botanical and fresh aroma.

The female-founded, premium mezcal brand has a smooth and balanced flavor profile that’s perfect for sipping or for blending. This cocktail oozes sophistication beyond measure with a totally nuanced take on how smoke profiles can balance out savory notes. Tony, the lead bartender on staff shared, “This drink poses as one of the few headache proof options because it delivers flavor without the need of sugar. It also provides the perfect merger between beginner mezcal and something a step above tequila.” Although an intricate recipe to recreate at home, definitely worth a shot – or full cocktail.
