Mezcal Old Fashioned

Courtesy Chris Vicic, beverage director, Downtown Sporting Club, Nashville

The familiar Old Fashioned, a guest favorite, is an ideal cocktail to showcase what Vicic says is “the earthy terroir” of mezcal. In place of whiskey, mezcal has “no problem holding its own” against the sweetness of Demerara sugar or the spice of Angostura bitters, he says. “We think this is a great way to introduce our clientele to a drink, including a spirit that may be a little bit out of their comfort zones.”


2 ounces mezcal
¼ ounce Demerara syrup
1 dash Angostura bitters
Orange peel, for garnish


In a rocks glass, stir together all ingredients (except garnish) with ice. Garnish with orange peel.
