Been completely re-watching Mad Men for about the 14th time and have been very into old-fashioneds again as a result. In the @NYtimesfood cocktail book I found this recipe from @deathandconyc and made it to mix things up from the traditional Don Draper rye old-fashioned. 🙂
? Oaxaca Old Fashioned ?
An old-fashioned with tequila and mezcal!
- 1.5 oz Gran Centenario Tequila
- .5 oz mezcal
- 1 tsp agave nectar
- 1 dash Angostura bitters
- 1 strip of orange peel with the pith, 1 inch wide
Stir all ingredients until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Hold a lighted match over drink in one hand and orange peel in other hand, with orange side facing flame and about an inch away. Carefully and quickly squeeze orange peel until oils spark. Put out match and drop peel into cocktail. I also added a little oregano leaf for some color because it's one of the last surviving herbs I've got growing at the moment. 🙂
