Tequila & Mezcal Cocktails Around the Globe

From Seattle to Shanghai, Boston to Sydney, here are our recommendations for where to celebrate Dia de Los Muertos over a potent tequila or mezcal cocktail. Bottoms up!

Antique Taco – Chicago

A boutique-meets-taqueria, Antique Taco provides the best of both food and shopping worlds, so it may seem difficult to believe that it could get any better than it already. But it can. Because they have booze. Specifically, a rosemary margarita and a mezcal punch. So swing by for happy hour, if not for tacos and a spot of consumerism.

Mezcaleria Oaxaca – Seattle

If you’re looking for the authentic flavors of Oaxaca in Seattle on this Dia de Los Muertos, they’re at Mezcaleria Oaxaca. Order up the rich, sweet mole, the slow-roasted goat and add on a smoky mezcal flight to really get in the spirit.

Logan’s Punch – Shanghai

No punch bar worth its salt skimps on the tequila, and Logan’s Punch is no exception. Case and point: their Emperor Norton Punch, made with cinnamon, orgeat syrup, orange cream bitter, white cacao, grapefruit and, as the menu puts it, “a metric shit ton of tequila.” See?

Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar – Boston

Tequila lovers, rejoice. Boston’s Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar stocks over 180 different bottles of the blue agave-based spirit. Have a ball trying different varieties, or indulge in trying out their different margaritas – writer Brittany Fischer likes the Broken Heart (Lolita Reposado, house orange liqueur, elderflower, lime, grape, raspberry), and the Spicy Cucumber (serrano chili tequila, cucumber, house orange liqueur, lime) sounds like a fun one to give a whirl.

Playa Takeria – Sydney

Though Sydney is a long haul from Mexico City, Playa Takeria in Darlinghurst has nailed the vibe and fare. Don’t skip chef Alejandro Urbina’s spicy tacos al pastor, and be sure to order up several jalapeno margaritas for good measure.
