Mezcal, mes’kal: is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from the heart of the maguey plant (a form of agave, Agave americana) native to Mexico. An Oaxacan saying regarding mezcal: ”para todo mal, mezcal, y para todo bien también” (“for everything bad, mezcal; for everything good, the same”). Mezcal has a strong smoky flavor and is generally consumed straight.
