Mezcal adds an extra kick to tequila in this updated version of the classic old-fashioned.

  1. 1 1/2 ounces reposado tequila
  2. 1/2 ounce mezcal
  3. 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  4. 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  5. Ice
  6. 1 orange twist
  1. In a mixing glass, combine the tequila, mezcal, bitters and agave nectar; fill the glass with ice and stir well. Strain into an ice-filled double rocks glass. Over the glass, hold the orange twist between your thumb and two fingers; hold a lit match 1 inch away from the twist and pinch the twist sharply to release its oils. Garnish the drink with the flamed twist.
