Sip on some artisanal offerings
Kickstart your mezcal education with a visit to El Bósforo. Easily one of the most respected mezcalería in CDMX, this unmarked bar a few blocks south of Alameda Central is surprisingly difficult to find. Once you have entered the candle-lit space, ask a bartender to talk you through the often-changing list of small-batch spirits from around the country, from San Luis Potosí to Puebla. The bottles might just have a few details scrawled on them with a marker pen, but that just adds to the secrecy of this special space. Enjoy the soundtrack, order quesadilla topped with toasted grasshopper-studded guacamole and feel smug in the knowledge that you are in the locals’ top mezcal spot.
