Mezcal is, so to say, a type of tequila. While tequila can only be made out of blue Weber agave in the Tequila region, mezcal can be made everywhere in Mexico using different types of agave. In the past producers actually took whatever agave they found to make mezcal. Mezcal is characterized by its smoky taste, which is why it’s also considered the more grown-up version of a tequila. Switching the tequila for a mezcal gives the classic sour taste of a Margarita more depth.
