Mezcal Old Fashioned

Mezcal…my new addiction! And when two of your great friends are bartenders, you have to learn how to make cocktails properly. So at 2am on a saturday night, it was lesson time!

Paolo Telesca was generous enough to share with me, and now with you one of his beautiful balanced cockails. Here is the recipe:



35ml Tequila Anejo

20ml Mezcal

25ml Agave nectar

3 dashes Angostura bitters

x1 Orange zest (squeezed and twist) for garnish


Oh and because we are all mad in here, add a dried worm or two!

Are you a fan of Mezcal yet? What’s your favourite cocktail?
