Peloton de la Muerte
About the Food
Served in a shot glass. The meaning of Pelotón de la Muerte translates to “the Squadron of Death”. The flag itself represented the insurgent army called “The Squadron of Death” who fought for Father Miguel Hidalgo who was executed by a firing squad in 1811, decapitated and taken to the Alhondiga de las Granaditas, in Guanajuato, where it was hung on exhibition for leading the revolution. This Mezcal Peloton De La Muerte pays homage to this story, Mexico’s struggle for Independence and celebrates it.
