The Oaxaca Old Fashioned cocktail, a staple at New York City’s dearly departed Mayahuel, is an agave-based riff on the classic whiskey Old Fashioned that mixes tequila and mezcal with Angostura bitters and agave syrup. Go the extra mile and ignite your garnish for an added burst of flavor, plus a pretty cool light show.

  • 1/2 ounce Del Maguey San Luis Del Rio mezcal

  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Garnish: flamed orange peel
