…and landed the AeroMexico account, this is the Old-Fashioned he would choose: The Tequila Old Fashioned.
The cocktail is sweetened not with a simple syrup but agave nectar, an appropriate co-pilot for tequila.
Agave is a natural sweetener with a low glycemic index of 27. So, if daughter Sally made this drink, she may not need to cut off a toe from Papa Cita Draper. I’m just sayin’…
My final cocktail in this Old Fashioned installment will appear on Friday. For a basic Old Fashioned, click here. For now, I leave you with tequila. Lime. Agave. Mmmm. The drinks works, oh-so well. Try it.
Tequila Old Fashioned
1 tsp agave syrup
2 dashes Angosutra Aromatic Bitters
3 0z Hornitos Resposado Tequila (Silver Patron works nicely, too)
Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, garnish with a lime twist.
