A Refreshing Cucumber Martini from Miguel Aranda of Casa Mezcal

You may have seen Miguel behind a bar or two in NYC (Daniel, Wallse, Patroon, Yerba Buena Perry, THOR, Toloache, Apotheke, Monkey Bar). For the Smoky party, Miguel offers the Cantaro, a combination of mezcal, lime juice, cucumber water, agave sage reduction, and egg white. Smoky, yet still wonderfully light and refreshing.

Miguel’s latest project takes place in the downstairs room at Casa Mezcal, in the Botanic Lab, where a bounty of spices and fresh local herbs, salt varietals, homemade bitters and teas from all over the globe get incorporated into the cocktails. Botanic Lab will also feature impromtu performances in music, art, burlesque in an intimate setting. botanic lab
