Oaxaca Old Fashioned

An instant classic, this riff on an Old Fashioned was created by bartender Phil Ward when he worked at Death & Co. 

What You Need


  • 1.5 oz Reposado Tequila
  • .5 oz Mezcal
  • 1/4 oz Agave Nectar
  • 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters


Mix the Cocktail: Combine the tequila, mezcal, agave and bitters into a mixing glass and fill with ice. Using a bar spoon, stir the cocktail for 10-15 seconds to chill.

Strain the Cocktail: Using a julep or hawthorne strainer, pour the cocktail into a rocks glass over a king cube.

Garnish the Cocktail: Using a flamed orange. Peel a thick strip of orange from a fresh piece of fruit. Taking the peel between your fingers express the oils over a flame held above the glass. After you've flamed the glass, drop in the orange peel.
