You are potentially five minutes away from having this super simple, sweet and Spicy tropical Mango & Passion Fruit Mezcal cocktail drink in your hands, with Mezcal, Mango & Passion Fruit and a kick of Jalapeño peppers.
To simplify this drink, I used St. Dalfour Mango & Passion Fruit Spread, which helps give that tropical cocktail vibe, with a rich texture and tangy finish that pair beautifully with jalapeño and Mezcal.
It’s slowly cooked, in small batch production, with hand-picked and sourced fruit, as well as with vineyard-ripened grapes and fruit juices in traditional French kettles.

What is Mezcal?
Mezcal is a Mexican alcoholic beverage that’s made from the heart of the Agave plant or “Piña” (translated as Pineapple). 70% of it is made in the Mexican State of Oaxaca.
Many believe Mezcal and Tequila are the same, but there are some differences between them:
- Tequila is a form of Mezcal made from Blue Agave that follows a specific process; on the other hand, Mezcal can be made from a variety of Agaves, including Blue Agave
- The Agave for Tequila is steamed in ovens, whereas the Agave for Mezcal is roasted in pits on the ground lined with rocks; as a result, Mezcal has a smokey and earthy flavor
- Tequila is distilled in copper pots. On the other hand, Mezcal is distilled in clay pots
For this cocktail I chose Mezcal, simply because I loved the smokiness it gives when all flavors are mixed; you can swap it for Tequila though, either way the results will be very similar.
