Ceramic Mezcal Cup w/Petal Plate, Grey
Smoky and sharp, mezcal is a distilled alcoholic beverage derived from the maguey plant (a form of agave) native to Mexico. A saying attributed to Oaxaca regarding the drink is: "Para todo mal, mezcal, y para todo bien, también." ("For every ill, mezcal, and for every good as well.") These cups, inspired by the agave plant, are perfect for drinking mezcal, whatever occasion. Typically served with orange slices and chili salt, the plate has a purpose. Each cup and plate is made by hand out of clay that has been fired and glazed by artisans in San Agustín Etla.
