Hey, BC here at Las Perlas in downtown L.A. And today, we're going to make the freshest margarita known to man or to you viewers watching. So, what we're going to do is we're going to start off with using mezcal; that's right, we're going to use mezcal instead of tequila. What's the difference between a mezcal and a tequila you ask? We'll before you get all crazy thinking there's something drastic, there really isn't. Now, tequila actually comes from a 100 percent blue agave plant which is part of the maguey family. Now, here's the thing. Mezcal can also come from 100 percent blue agave but is known for using all sorts of varieties of maguey plants. Now, the maguey plant actually can cause differentiations in flavor and taste right off the break. The other big difference between the two is mezcals can be made anywhere in Mexico, whereas tequila has to be made in the state of Jalisco. So, that's the main thing. Then, we can get into flavor and say that a lot of people say that mezcal can be more of a smoky flavor and lesser fine than tequila which is partially true. But again, mezcals have a lot of different varieties of flavor. So, what we're going to do to start off with is we're going to fill our tin with ice; then, we're going to take our mezcal and we're going to take two ounces of this beautiful beautiful flavored stuff right here. We're going to use the Vida Mezcal. We're going to take half an ounce of Royal Combier; you can use any orange liqueur for that matter and we're going to take one ounce of lime juice. We're going to also add half an ounce of our agave nectar. Talk about maguey plant, this is also from the maguey plant right here. We're going to take our glass, put it right on down. Before we put it down, let's get a nice salted rim on there. Take our lime, go along the edges right there, tap it in some Kosher salt, knock off any excess. Now, we're going to shake this bad boy up. Can you smell the freshness? Hmmm, I can; that makes me want to have a nice fresh margarita right here at Las Perlas at downtown L.A. My name is BC, and I will be serving you a fresh margarita anytime you come on by.
