If you're not quite ready to say goodbye to summer, you're in for a treat! The Raymond|1886 Bar has an endless summer celebration on Saturday, September 30th, amidst National Hispanic Heritage Month, The Raymond honors the contributions and presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans. Head Barman Peter Lloyd-Jones leads the revelry with one-of-a-kind mezcal bottlings, signature
1886 mezcal cocktails, and cocktail fair prepared by Executive Chef Tim Guiltinan on The Raymond patio from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm with beats by DJ Ces.
The smoky and alluring mezcal is the stuff of literal legend. The ancient Zapotec civilization called mezcal the elixir of the gods, it's no wonder it's my spirit of choice. It is still used today for ceremonial blessings, honoring the dead, and celebrating the latest addition to a family. Mezcal is the ideal libation with which to say farewell to summer!
Tickets to this event are $86 all-inclusive and worth every penny. You will be greeted with a mezcal inspired Raspado, a South of the Border style slushie traditionally made of fruit, blended with ice and seasoned with Chamoy, (a spicy and sweet Mexican condiment made with strawberry). Two more mezcal cocktails will follow, The Saladito, comprised of lime, honey, mezcal, chile and salt, and The Mezcal Buck, featuring ginger, lime amaro, mezcal, and soda. Up next are two very special mezcal tastings, showcasing the best of what The Raymond 1886 has to offer.
No feast is complete without food and music. Oaxacan flavors will also enrapture the tastebuds with delectable cocktail fare provided throughout the event by Executive Chef Tim Guiltinan and Sous Chef Eddie Cho, along with dessert from Pastry Chef Raymond Morales and the scratching and mixing of DJ Ces. This is one summer party you won't want to miss.
