The low smoke, agave forward mezcal brand will introduce two new drinks to Tap 42’s cocktail menu.
Desolas Mezcal is debuting two brand new cocktails at Tap 42 Craft Kitchen + Bar – the Maui Wowie Margarita and Frozen Mango Margarita. The cocktails will be available across all nine Tap 42 South Florida locations, boasting the agave spirit’s signature low smoke mezcal flavor profile. Tap 42 Craft Kitchen + Bar is a leading upscale casual dining and drinking destination known for its chef-driven menu and carefully curated beverage selections.
The Maui Wowie Margarita blends pineapple, lime, ginger and orange notes alongside Desolas, creating an essential tropical cocktail option for those looking for escapism in a pinch. The Frozen Mango Margarita serves as a tasty option for those looking for a refreshing twist on the classic margarita.
“We’re delighted to be joining forces with Tap 42 to unveil our two latest specialty cocktails,” said GG Mirvis, CEO and Founder of Desolas. “Tap 42 is highly regarded for its handcrafted beverage program and the new cocktails will make for the perfect, refreshing addition.”
Inspired by traditional time-honored techniques of mezcal production, Desolas Mezcal is delicately handcrafted from the Salmiana Agave in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, creating a distinct mezcal and flavor profile with low smoke and botanical and fresh aroma. The Salmiana Agave is known as the “Green Giant” due to its enormous size and requires careful handling. The Piñas are cooked in above ground ovens known as “hornos” instead of an underground pit, resulting in a mezcal with lower smoke and more agave forward. The arid air and chalky soil of the region also contributes to the mezcal’s distinctive flavor characteristics, exposing herbal, grassy, and botanical notes.
“Desolas is unlike any other mezcal I’ve ever tasted before with its unique and complex flavor,” said Alex Rudolph, Partner and VP of Development at Tap 42. “Mezcal has become increasingly popular, and we anticipate the new cocktails to become an instant crowd favorite.”
Desolas found great success in 2022 as the brand recently announced its expanding distribution in New York, Florida and Georgia. Launched in 2020, Desolas is a female-founded brand that honors the artisanal process of crafting mezcal. Mirvis has spent over a decade working in the spirits industry and developed a passion for mezcal and the tradition and mystique that surrounds the spirit.
Desolas Mezcal is now served on premise across all Tap 42 Kitchen + Bar locations in addition to other prominent venues throughout New York and Florida. Desolas is also available online for nationwide shipping and can be found at select retailers throughout New York, Florida, Georgia, Texas and California.
