Meet Me In San Luis

Alicia Yamachika, bartender

This drink is Nobu’s cocktail of the month for October. Mezcal, its main ingredient, is a type of alcohol that’s made from the agave. Yamachika, who created Meet Me In San Luis, says the herbs really shine through in the Mezcal, and the cocktail has a smoky finish. You can expect more creative concoctions from Yamachika, as she’s off to Portland Cocktail Week to learn more about the art of craft cocktail making. To learn more about her, see her interview with Barkeep columnist Kait Hanson (on the right).
