Agave Dinner Series feat. Mezcal Amarás
Curated and led by the luxury beachfront resort’s certified resident Catador Chris Simmons, the Agave Dinner Series is a collection of seaside pairings that explore the range of spirits crafted from the agave plant. The 2023 series will begin with a journey through the complex, smoky flavors of Mezcal Amarás during a five-course dinner by VAGA Chef de Cuisine Mark Enciso. Sip, savor and sway to live music – all on the open-air Oceana Terrace overlooking the sparkling Pacific.
Tickets include welcome cocktails, a five-course dinner and mezcal pairings. Take-home bottles will also be available for purchase. Guests can expect to indulge in menu highlights including roasted red dragon napa cabbage with pistachio mole and chili crisp; king salmon with coconut leche de tigre, fennel and watercress; adobo brandt beef short ribs with red rice congii; and triple citrus cardamom pavlova with salted honey whip and lemon balm.
Mezcal Amarás partners with a thoughtfully curated group of Maestro Mezcaleros in Oaxaca, Mexico to create a diverse collection of mezcal from 18 different types of agave. As the world’s first carbon-neutral mezcal company, Mezcal Amarás honors the past through each Maestro Mezcalero’s ancestral methods, yet is mindful of the future with modern sustainable growth practices and 100% natural, chemical-free fermentation. The process begins with a five-day pit-roasting ritual layering piñas with wood and river rocks, resulting in mezcals with pure, rich flavor profiles that are an adventurous departure from traditional tequila.
