Seems like a good time to graduate from tequila to mezcal (the sipping kind).
With the right guidance, it is a leap of faith.
"More organic than tequila," we are taught. "Mezcal is actually drops of time. You don't get drunk, you get closer to God."
Which translates to this: "Everyone should believe in something; I believe I'll have another mezcal."
Or this: "When mezcal speaks, people mumble."
Can you imagine if gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson, a master mumbler, had switched from Wild Turkey to mezcal? Would-a been a whole new language...
