Can't touch this.

Here at Untouchable, you'll find pretty decent writing, heartfelt reviews, tried-and-true outfits, Op-Eds (mostly griping about the fashion industry), essays ("Hell is other people" is pretty much my motto), and whatever else finds its way here. Thanks for coming by, and please keep hands and feet inside until the ride stops.

Cocktail Hour: A Ginger Renacida with Vicio Mezcal

Cocktail Hour: A Ginger Renacida with Vicio Mezcal

In vino veritas. In cervesio felicitas. And (as far as I'm concerned) in cocktails, rebirth. 

I'm a wary cocktailer. I've always stuck to craft beer, and more specifically, draught craft beer. I was quite happy to stay in the safe and happy universe of artisanal brews, especially since that world has been experiencing a Big Bang as more and more microbreweries are popping up faster than you can say reinheitsebot

But, I've since expanded my repertoire to include spirits, and in my brief but noble quest to find my signature drink, I've gravitated toward ginger-centric libations. (The logic behind this? Ginger makes it virtually hangover-proof.)

Here's my go-to; a zesty, smoky mezcal and ginger cocktail I call the Vicio Renacida - that's Spanish for "reborn". It's an re-incarnation of a margarita and an agave bonfire, and after a few of these, you will certainly feel reborn.  Or, if you're lucky, you may even be reborn as Vicio's mascot, an axolotl, like Julio Cortazar

VICIO RENACIDA 

Ingredients:
1.5 oz Vicio Mezcal
1 oz Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur
1/2 oz lemon or lime juice (fresh squeezed, that's about half a lemon)
1/2 oz simple syrup

Fresh Ginger  
Candied Ginger

Dice some fresh ginger and muddle in a tumbler. Pour Vicio Mezcal, Domain de Canton liqueur, simple syrup and lemon juice into a shaker and shake vigorously with ice. Strain, and pour into the tumbler over the muddled ginger. Garnish with candied ginger.
