OAXACA OLD-FASHIONED Adapted From Death & Co.
1 ½ounces El Tesoro Reposado tequila
½ounce Los Amantes Joven mezcal
1 teaspoon amber agave nectar
Dash of Angostura bitters
Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir, then strain into a rocks glass filled with ice cubes. Garnish with the orange twist*.
*At Death & Co., the peel is flamed. To do this, hold a section of peel — skin side down, gently grasped between thumb and forefinger — a few inches above the drink and just above a lighted match. Squeeze the peel quickly, expelling the peel’s oil into the flame, where it will momentarily burst, and onto the surface of the drink. Good luck with that!
