On the second episode of MUNCHIES Guide to Oaxaca, host Daniel Hernández explores the world of mezcal, Oaxaca's sacred spirit. Daniel starts by sampling artisanal, hand-crafted mezcal at two cozy tasting bars in Oaxaca City, Mezcaloteca and Los Amantes. After fueling his buzz, he visits a palenque in nearby Santiago Matatlán, considered the capital region of Oaxaca's mezcal scene. There, he throws a few maguey "hearts" on the fire and learns how mezcal is made, from plant to first sip. Remember, always "kiss" your mezcal, don't shoot it!
