A smoky tequila cocktail based off the classic Old Fashioned. Made with flavorful reposado tequila, smoky mezcal and a dash of bitters. Served over a chunk of ice and finished with a charred orange peel.


  • 1 ½ ounces Reposado tequila
  • 1 ounce mezcal
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup
  • 2 dashes angostura bitter or mole bitters
  • 1 orange peel


Combine tequila, mezcal, agave, and bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir until thoroughly chilled. Strain into a rocks glass with one large ice cube or three standard ice cubes.

Flame orange peel with a lit match by running it along the orange side and edges. Drop orange peel in glass and serve.


If the smokiness of mezcal tends to be a bit strong for you, start with ½ ounce and add more as desired.
