For Cocktail Week, Pepita's offering is called the Hasta Mañana. The drink brings together mezcal, pomegranate, ginger, cardamom and lemon.

"I wanted to make an agave-based cocktail, because tequila and mezcal are at the core of the Pepita beverage program," explained Pepita's Taha Ismail. "To create a nice fall flavor profile, we paired the smokiness of the mezcal with seasonal flavors like pomegranate and ginger, and used cardamom to brighten it up. The drink is original, but it's stylistically similar to a margarita, and if people like it as much as we do, it might make its way onto that section of our menu."

Try the drink all this week for $10.
