In Spanish, "camino" means path, road or journey, and "lobo" is a wolf, so a drink called "the wolf's path" sounded pretty awesome to us! Also, it's made with one of our favorite mezcals, Montelobos, so we were excited to learn more.
This cocktail is made with:
The drink comes from Dove's Luncheonette in Chicago, serving "southern-inspired Mexican cuisine—morning, noon and night" in the Windy City's Wicker Park, a neighborhood known for its music, nightlife, restaurants, art and museums.
Espadin is a type of agave (as are, for example Cuishe, Mexicano, Jabalí, Tepextate and Madre Cuishe). And "jovin" means young, which is what you want in a mezcal (i.e., not aged), so you will see the word "jovin" featured prominently on the bottle. Also of note, Montelobos mezcal is organic and sustainably sourced in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Camille Austin is a brand ambassador for Montelobos and shared this drink from Dove's via Instagram.
