Tequila • Spicy
Oaxaca Old Fashioned

Here is a variation of a variation, with the flavorful combo of Don Julio Reposado Tequila, Mezcal Uni贸n and a few dashes of habanero-spiked tincture bringing a new wrinkle to the Oaxaca Old Fashioned, a craft-cocktail staple ever since it was created in 2007. The spirits deliver floral notes along with a hint of smokiness and white pepper, while the habanero ramps up the heat. Bitters and mellow agave syrup round it all off.
