It’s Been A Long Week: Smokin’ Maid

As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make yourself a glass or two, on us — you deserve it.

Maybe everyone around is jetting off on a much needed tropical vacation, but we’ve got Mexico on our mind too with Tijuana Picnic‘s mezcal goodness. Think of it like a mezcal mojito with the hot and spicy notes, and extra jalapeño tequila kick balanced with mint leaves, lime, and agave syrup. While you’re at it, grab a taco (or five) too!
