Scorpion Mezcal Arrives for Review
Back in the old days, if you wanted a drink with a creepy crawly in it, you had to settle for a plain old worm in your Mezcal...or wait for a cockroach to fall from your ceiling into your glass. Then, way back in January, we told you about Scorpion Mezcal, a spirit that has something way cooler than your run-of-the-mill scuttling arthropod. Yes, as you can probably guess from the name, every bottle of Scorpion Mezcal contains a scorpion...de-stingered and harmless of course, but cool nonetheless. After much heartache and some pretty hefty maneuvering (thanks, Barbara) we've finally got a bottle in our hands, and we have to say...it's just as badass as you might think.
We're itching to review this, mostly because we can't wait to see what a Mezcal-soaked scorpion tastes like, but we're going to have to wait until the weekend for this one. Color us excited, and if everything goes according to plan, if you see us on Sunday morning we'll be the ones with bits of exoskeleton in our teeth. Anyway, take some of the sting out of the wait (get it?) by checking out the Scorpion Mezcal site.
