The Banyan Tree Cabo Marques in Mexico is now offering a new “Mezcal Experience” to guests at its La Nao restaurant.
Mezcal, a distilled alcoholic spirit native to Mexico, is made out of a variety of semi-wild agave and is used during many rituals and festivities in Mexican villages.
During the resort’s “Mezcal Experience”, waiters at La Nao visit each table with a beverage cart offering guests a complimentary taste of the drink. The spirit is served in traditional “guaje,” a hollowed-out calabash fruit, along with orange, tangerine and grapefruit segments. The mezcal is then sprinkled with seasoned salts, including red grasshopper salt and agave worm salt.
The Banyan Tree Cabo Marques, a Banyan Tree Group resort, is located in Punta Diamante near Acapulco. Its La Nao restaurant serves dishes inspired by both Latin and Asian cuisine.
