Oaxaca Old Fashioned
The King of Mezcal Cocktails
Widely known as the quintessential calling card of mezcal cocktails, the Oaxaca Old Fashioned was developed by bartender Phil Ward during his time at Death & Co., but the uncomplicated yet memorable union of tequila, mezcal, agave nectar, and bitters rose to fame on the menu at Mayahuel. Now it’s widely heralded as the drink that communicated the potential and versatility of the spirit in the cocktail world. The recipe hasn’t aged a day. One sip, and you’ll be hooked.
Directions from Phil Ward, Mayahuel, New York City
Mix the tequila, mezcal, agave nectar, and bitters in a mixing glass with ice. Strain over a fresh rock in an Old Fashioned glass. Flame an orange peel overthe top of the drink, and rest the twist in the glass as a garnish.
- 1½ Ounces El Tesoro reposado tequila
- ½ Ounce Del Maguey San Luis del Rio mezcal
- 1 Bar spoon agave nectar
- 2 Dashes Angostura bitters
- Flamed Orange Twist, for garnish
