Duraznos en mezcal

I couldn’t remember what exactly duraznos were until they were served. Peaches! The server told me they didn’t have the vanilla ice cream that was normally served atop.

It was listed as a dessert, so I knew it wasn’t offal or some odd fungus. 

The dessert would have been much better with cream or ice cream, but I had a hankering for fruit  so I enjoyed them. The sliced peaches (possibly canned) were sautéed with butter, sugar and of course, mezcal. The mezcal added a slight smokiness to the peaches. 

I was in fact at the cafe attached to the Tequila Museum, so I also had a shot of mezcal. 

The mezcal was served with slices of oranges which had been sprinkled with salt and sugar.
