To Do Monday: Let the Spirit Move You

Mescal comes from the Peyote cactus

Peyote cactus, the key ingredient in mescal.

Pre-game the holiday weekend with some artisanal mescals from Oaxaca. Distillers, brand ambassadors and masters of mescal will be available to guide guests while they sample 11 different spirits. Mescal is an ancient and complex spirit and ancestral tradition from the remote highlands of Southern Mexico. A ticket purchase includes the event, a mescal-tasting cup, a taste of Mexican antojitos, a celebration cocktail and a souvenir passport of your (probably fuzzy by then) journey through Oaxaca’s mescals.

Bilboteca, 622 Third Avenue, (212) 808-8110, 6:30-9:30pm, $40.
