Mix Up a Good Time with Scorpion Mezcal and Mexican Chocolate

If there’s one thing I love pairing with mezcals, it’s chocolate.  When you find a great quality mezcal that can hold it’s own against a dark chocolate, pair it.  The flavor combinations will open your palate to a whole new world of flavorful delights.  Here are just a few suggestions for pairing with the Scorpion Mezcal Sampler Box.

Grab a sampler of Scorpion mezcals, some adventurous friends, and make a few of these Mexican Chocolate desserts:
