Celebrate Mezcal Week at Mamasita this September

Mexico’s much-loved agave drink mezcal will be celebrated this September for Mezcal Week, taking place 8-15 September at Mamasita – the only Australian participating venue in the global initiative.

Mezcal lovers can indulge in a special Mezcal Week Banquet menu with dishes featuring a variety of mezcals all week ($79pp). The six-course menu includes the likes of macadamia and cashew nut chorizo tostadita with cashew tequila crema and pico de gallo (pictured below right); Ceviche of lime and mezcal-spiked market fish with coconut, tomatillo, mint, habanero; Flan with reposado tequila caramel and almond praline (pictured below left), as well as more mouth-watering courses.

Mamasita has put together an option of matched mezcals ($55pp) to accompany the banquet, including Bruxo #1, Legendario Domingo, Leyenda Puebla, Nuestra Soledad, Matatlan, Delirio Reposado and Del Maguey Crema de mezcal. 

During Mezcal Week guests can also enjoy a delicious Mezcal Cocktail Flight ($55pp), including the Smoky Margarita; Cucumber jalapeño Margarita; Lemon chipotle Margarita; Oaxaca old-fashioned; finishing with an Horchata, PX and Crema de mezcal digestivo for those who want to learn more about Mexico’s heralded drink and experience a tasting like no other.

The week will culminate with a free Mexican Independence Day Mezcal tasting held By Luis Herrera, one of Australia’s most knowledgeable Mezcal minds – from 3pm – bookings are essential. The lunch menu will feature a Chile en Nogada special – a traditional Independence Day dish.

Mamasita’s Matt Lane says:“Mezcal truly is a handcrafted artisan beverage which has withstood the domination of global enterprise. Being a foundation of our hospitality ethos makes Mezcal week such an important celebration to support.”

Mezcal Week is a global initiative from the Mezcal Collaborative, a member association dedicated to responsibly building an education platform and driving campaigns around mezcal.
