What you'll do

The exiting tasting will start at 7 pm at Mérida Santiago Hotel Boutique and will last about 2 hours. In the short introduction we will give you some information about history, regions and differences between tequila and mezcal. The tasting will start with in total 4 small shots of tequila and you will be able to understand and taste the difference between them. Some exotic flavorful Mexican snack will be served with it. After the tasting we will prepare a small signature cocktail with tequila and have a small gourmet snack, prepared by the chef of Mérida Santiago Hotel Boutique. We continue with the mezcal tasting. In total we will try 4 small shots of quality artesanal or ancestral mezcales and explain the difference between them. Be mentally prepared to eat the Mexican way and find out how delicious the Chapulines (crickets) or Nucu (flying ants) are and how well they match with Mezcal. Then we will prepare a signature cocktail with mezcal which will be perfectly paired with a less challenging gourmet snack.  The end of this wonderful afternoon full of flavors, fragrances and taste will be around 9 pm. In case you like to enjoy the atmospheric Mérida Santiago Hotel Boutique a little more, it will be possible to order some drinks at the bar or try the delicious food at the pool side restaurant. We wish you a great experience and see you soon!
