If you’ve never had a mezcal-spiked paleta, get to Mezcalite Pop in Oaxaca’s historic center immediately. The place might look like an exciting new cocktail bar, with pastel couches, pink and green tiled walls, and the glowing “pop” sign, but instead of drinking, you choose from a colorful assortment of mezcal-infused, tropical fruit-flavored paletas and nieves (you can also do flavors without mezcal). Don’t leave without trying the refreshing and perfectly spicy Paty Chamoy with your choice of creamy nieve, chamoy, chili salt, and spicy gummies. While they come in plastic cups that are easy to take on the go, you might want to stick around and sit on their comfortable couches for a bit. These boozy and sweet treats are the best way to feel recharged and energized after clocking 15,000 steps on a walking tour.
