La Condesa's Tepache Margarita

[Photographs: Melody Fury]

Tepache is an ancient Mayan pineapple spirit and La Condesa's version is "slightly fermented and has the spark of kombucha," according to Nate Wales. Making tepache at home may sound daunting, you really just combine a few ingredients and let it ferment undisturbed.

Note: Yuzu juice can be found bottled in Japanese grocers and specialty shops, or online. Many brands contain salt or other preservatives. Look for versions that contain nothing but yuzu juice.
