How to make an Oaxaca Old-Fashioned
- Add agave nectar and bitters to the bottom of an Old-Fashioned glass.
- Add tequila and mezcal.
- Add one large ice cube. The best ones barely fit inside the glass.
- Stir until chilled.
- Cut a slice of peel from a fresh, firm orange using a vegetable peeler or channel knife. Aiming the cut side over the surface of the drink, twist it to squeeze out a mist of essential oils, then drop it in the glass.
