The boys and I decided to vacation in Mexico last summer. We’ve done the beachy coastal resort thing many, many times. When they suggested Mexico City, I was so excited. As soon as I booked our flights, I started looking up restaurant reservations. Mexico City has a world-class food scene. A birthday during our trip allowed for the ultimate “treat yo self” moment and I made reservations at Quintonil.
I wanted the full experience so I went with the tasting menu and I asked for cocktail recommendations. I could have lost myself in their glorious wine list but I was in Mexico, an opportunity for great tequila and mezcal. Mezcal is NOT my liquor of choice but most of the house cocktails had mezcal and I didn’t dare protest. The Aqua de Quintonil was perfect, citrusy and refreshing.
