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