October might make you think of ghouls, ghosts, and spooky spirits, but at Del Maguey, they’re thinking about another type of spirit – Del Maguey Vida de Muertos.

With National Mezcal Day coming up on October 21, and Dia de los Muertos on November 1, sipping on Vida de Muertos is perfect for celebrating. With notes of tropical fruit and hints of warming spice, it’s perfect for fall. More of a cocktail enthusiast? Try mixing up the warm and citrusy Quicksand, which utilizes the signature expression Vida.

Del Maguey’s portfolio of premium mezcals are made from agave that is harvested throughout Oaxaca giving them rich, sweet and roasty characteristics.


  • 2 parts ounces Del Maguey Vida Single Village Mezcal
  • 1 part Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao
  • 1 part Maurin Quina
  • 4 dashes orange bitters per serving
  • 1 wide swath of orange peel, for garnish per serving

Combine all the ingredients, except the garnish, in a mixing glass filled with ice and stir. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the orange peel.
