OLD FASHIONED MEETS MEZCAL
Spirits, sugar, and bitters: a classic Old-Fashioned cocktail. What if you just want a Mexican version of this good old drink? There is a very popular recipe we LOVE created by Phil Ward; it was part of the Death and Co’s first menu in 2007. This is a well-balanced and delicious variation of an Old-Fashioned cocktail and also one of the most requested and imitated in bars all over the world.
