Background & History

A split-base cocktail combining tequila and mezcal with a helping of sweet spice from the crème de cacao, allspice dram, and Angostura bitters.

Notes & Review

Potentially a riff on the Oaxaca Old-Fashioned, this is a lovely sipper, especially for the holidays. Smooth, subtly smoky, with hints of chocolate and lots of aromatic spices from the Angostura and allspice dram (which I'd maybe cut down to 1 tsp in future makings). The original recipe instructs to build this in-glass with only a few stirs but we found it better with a full stir for more coldness and slightly more dilution.
