Casa Lumbre’s Cesar Sandoval has achieved a lot in a little time because of one key personality characteristic: transparency. Ask him whatever, he’s an open book of knowledge, compassion, and drum fills. His latest chapter with Abasolo Mexican Whiskey and Nixta Licor de Elote bring him into the fields of corn running throughout Mexico. With a little bit of shaking and a little bit of stirring, corn can change everything. We chat microphones, self reflection, and Cacahuazintle.
