I’ve written about El Barrio before, it’s your mezcal destination on the Russian River in Guerneville, and they aren’t disappointing for Mezcal Week when they will be featuring a cocktail, snack, and special flight. Here are their details. Definitely stop by and try them out!
Mezcal cocktail: “El Hombre”
A mezcal old-fashioned with Nuestra Soledad from La Compañia (high smoke) and a splash of Jefferson bourbon. All-spice rinse, Jamaican bitters, splash of lemon with a lemon zest.
Bar bite: “Albondigas de Cordero”
A lamb meatball with bread crumbs, caramelized onion and lamb broth with whiskey soaked raisins and crispy fideo.
Mezcal flight: “La Vitalidad”
This is a flight of 3 one ounce pours and in this order:
1. Mezcal Vago Ensamble en Barro
