Ilegal Mezcal Drinks

Signature Mezcal Cocktails by Ilegal Bartenders

Made with sustainable Espadín agave, our Joven, Reposado, and Añejo mezcals are perfect neat. Our aged mezcals are rested in a combination of new and used American oak, medium char barrels, a unique and complex taste for those who enjoy sipping spirits.

Our mezcals are also exceptional in cocktails – originals and reimagined classics alike.  Check out our signature mezcal cocktail recipes, and try Ilegal as the base spirit in a Mezcal Margarita, a Mezcal Mule, or your favorite cocktail.

“There are some basic mantras that we live by: Support the whole category, not just Ilegal. Don’t ‘give back’. ‘Give along the way.’ When traveling, always remember you are a guest in someone else’s country. Desks are dull, be out there where the action is. Throw a damn good party.”

Marquez emphasizes that Ilegal isn’t attempting to showcase a singular or superior style of production, but is rather pursuing its own preference. “There’s an over-specification of what mezcal should or shouldn’t be,” he says. “It’s an artisanal spirit, so who is one artisan to say to another that your art form isn’t correct? It doesn’t mean it’s the best way or the only way, it’s the way we do it.”
