Cocktail Hour: Agave Old Fashioned Recipe

The Old Fashioned is one of America's greatest cocktails. The Agave Old Fashioned that we feature here at Empellón Cocina has a bit more of a richness and smokier edge than most. I use two mezcals in this drink: a clear mezcal with a smokey back burn and a mezcal that is aged in wood, which gives the drink body.

An Old Fashioned also always has sugar and bitters. Instead, to give ours a Mexican twist, we use a spice agave nectar and chocolate mole bitters.
