What Tainted Booze?

And what about some of the local (bootleg) mescal, such as that sold by Don Eladio, aka Señor Gunnysack? One of the cantineros at our hotel this past winter also hooked me up with some even better local mescal. Are these suspect?

It's easy to buy bad mezcal. Don Eladio makes no secret of the fact that he sells two kinds. One that is pure mezcal that costs a little more, and one that has extra alcohol added. It's okay to drink, but the mezcal with extra alcohol packs a wallop and goes down a bit rough. I drank it for years and survived. ;-)

You can get good mezcal at the Eco-Tianguis Zanca each Saturday morning in the plaza in front of the Vicente Guerrero school across the street from the museum. They also sell good mezcal at Restaurante Any across from Banamex and at La Porteña on the downtown waterfront.
