We just returned from Mexico City and an extraordinary mezcal trek. There's really no way to describe the inspiration that wafts through the streets of this incredible city, between the rich colors, music emanating from the taquerias, and blooming floral aromas from jungled, lush parks.

In between sips of rare varietals of maguey, we tasted and smelled our way through town, from fresh fruit in the mercado to a luxurious taco tasting at Pujol, one of the top-rated restaurant experiences in the world. 

Pour yourself a glass of mezcal, spritz on some K+J, and read on to join us on the adventure and some must-sees that will help you plan your own adventure in CDMX.
