Thanksgiving, Guajolote and Pechuga!

Thanksgiving is by far one of my favorite American Holidays. Celebrated all over the world by expats and people who are away from home, I always seemed to find myself having dinner or a celebration toast with a couple of wanderers or my bilingual friends who also shared a sense of nostalgia for the times we spent Thanksgiving with our friends and family in the U.S.

Giving thanks and being grateful for those who surround us and support us is a universal sentiment. Thanksgiving is a holiday that crosses all boundaries and no matter what religion or ethnicity you have, people take a moment to gather around a table to feast and express thanks for all the blessings that we enjoy, the people who have come into our lives for a reason, the lessons we have learned, and for our family members who we so often take for granted.

As a Mexican who grew up in California, I am thankful for having the opportunity to experience the best of both worlds and for my bicultural roots which have made me who I am today. I am thankful for my family who has always supported all my endeavors and whom without I would probably not be able to share this project with all the wonderful people I have met in the past two years. I am thankful that there are still people out there who selflessly wish you to succeed and are willing to lend a hand to someone in need. I am thankful for the producers of wonderful mezcal who still understand the tradition and spiritual significance of what is the finest spirit in the world.

La Niña del Mezcal PECHUGA

And to give thanks I shall raise my glass today with some mezcal, of course. And as it is Thanksgiving, I find it only appropriate to toast with Mezcal de Pechuga which has been triple distilled with a Turkey breast and a mixture of seasonal fruits, including plums, prunes, tejocotes, apples, cinammon, cloves and more! All this accompanied by some traditional Oaxacan Mole with Guajolote!


– La Niña del Mezcal

La Niña del Mezcal PECHUGA is made by a family of 5th generation producers in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. The mixture of seasonal fruits used to make our Pechuga is a traditional recipe that has been passed on generation after generation. It is distilled in the months of Fall and the selection of fruits and spices make it the perfect spirit to enjoy during the holiday season.
