Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz Reposado Tequila
  • .5 oz Mezcal
  • 1 tsp Agave Syrup
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters
  • 1 Peel Orange For Garnish

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients into a mixing glass over ice
  • Stir for 20 seconds
  • Strain over a big cube into an old fashioned glass
  • Take an orange peel and express oils over drink. Light a match for extra effect.

Notes

I've found agave syrup to be sweeter than typical demerara, so be careful not to use too much. 1 teaspoon should be plenty. 
The flamed orange peel is a great touch and is fun to do when making drinks for guests, but the drink is certainly still delicious without it.
