Latin-Asian fusion is hot right now, but Asian immigrants have been influencing traditional Mexican cuisine for centuries. Pati goes food shopping with her friend chef Janet Yu and gets inspired to create a menu full of Asian-inspired Mexican meals.
Cocktail de Mezcal con Sriracha
– 1 1/2 cup mezcal joven (young mezcal)
– 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, plus more for coating the glass rims
– 1 liter lime- or lemon-flavored sparkling soda
– 1/4 cup Sriracha sauce
– Kosher or coarse sea salt, for coating the glass rims
Mix the mezcal, lime juice, soda and Sriracha sauce in a large pitcher. Stir well and add a few ice cubes. Pour a layer of salt onto a small plate. Onto another small plate, squeeze enough lime juice to wet the top rims of the serving glasses. And, one by one, gently dip the top rims of the glasses first into the lime juice, then into the salt to coat. Add a few ice cubes to each glass and pour the cocktail.
