Amazing time last night watching Agave: Spirit of a Nation. Go see it where you can! So beautiful, so in love with all the images and characters still, on the following day. Oh Mexico! I’d been talking to these guys for months, eagerly anticipating this movie. When they arrived in Toronto, they gave me a couple of tickets and I can’t tell you how much this was worth the wait! The Q@A with Director Matthew Riggieri at the end was the coa on the Agave. Thanks for joining me @jamesgbailey! Had a great time!

@agavefilm great documentary filmed predominantly in the Sierra Madre's of #Oaxaca and highlands of #Jalisco . Film Makers Nicholas Kovacic and Matthew Riggieri wanted to make statement using the #tequila and #mezcal as a vehicle to break down barriers, introduce the world to these truly amazing people, agave farmers, tequila and mezcal makers, families - their amazing legacy and foster respect for the amazing culture in #Mexico 👏🎬🇲🇽🇨🇦🇺🇲 thanks for sharing these stories with us!
I do love a good marg - and this fresh, herbal and smoky cocktail was the perfect thing after a tough day! The cooling notes from the cucumber were the perfect thing to counter the spiciness from the chili, with the split base of tequila and mezcal providing just the right amount of smokiness. Try the lovely bold flavours in this recipe if you would like a change of pace from your usual marg!
Spicy Cucumber and Basil Margarita
1 oz Calle 23 reposado tequila
1 oz mezcal @delmaguey
3/4 oz agave syrup
3/4 oz lime juice
6-8 basil leaves
2 slices cucumber
2-3 slices of jalapeño
Moisten the lip of a rocks glass with lime juice, and rim the glass half-way around with chili salt. Muddle the jalapeño, basil and cucumber with the agave syrup in a shaker. Add the other ingredients and shake with ice. Strain over fresh ice in your prepared glass.
We celebrated our 24th anniversary (five days early) at our famous neighborhood eatery, @willowsinn - starting with such great cocktails. Of course “”Mezcal Girl” had the Avant Gardner. “Pirate Guy” (wish he didn’t need the patch) had a great whiskey drink. #anniversary#celebration#cocktails#mezcal#cheers
