Workers toss raw maguey piñas into a pit filled with hot rocks. The piñas will cook for a few days before being removed from the oven, mashed and distilled into mezcal. Mezcal is an alcohol similar to tequila in that it comes from the agave plant. Where the two drinks differ is what makes mezcal an increasingly popular artisanal drink throughout the United States.
