DeLeón Old Fashioned

It’s a special drink and put a spin on the Old Fashioned classic cocktail with something new from out friends at DeLeón Tequila.  Featuring the rick, oaky flavor of DeLeón’s Reposado, the DeLeón Old Fashioned takes the standards of the Old Fashioned category to the next level with an sweet oak taste and buttery texture.  In this cocktail, the warm cinnamon notes and vanilla finish of the oak-aged Reposado are enhanced with smoke from the addition of mescal, sweetness from tequila’s native agave, and space from Angostura bitters for a Mexican twist on this traditional cocktail. Give it a shot for your next evening cocktail.

  • 2 dashes of angostura bitters

Directions: Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass over clean cubed and cracked ice until thoroughly chilled.  Strain into a rocks glass over a single, clean, large format rock.  Garnish with an orange peel. Enjoy.
