La Escondida

This mezcal-spiked cocktail takes its name from the “La Escondida” (“The Hidden Woman”) legend that lends its name to the popular Oaxacan port town of Puerto Escondido. According to the story, a young woman, kidnapped by pirates, escaped and hid in the bay of what is now Puerto Escondido; she was never found.
