We've taken the classic Old Fashioned south of the boarder with this 'nuevo' twist. The Mezcal Antiquo Fashioned swaps the bourbon or rye found in a typical Old Fashioned for smokey mezcal and resposado tequila. Garnish this drink with a charred jalapeno and you've got a refined fiesta in a glass.
To char your jalapeño, slice lengthwise and place skin side up in oven set to broil. Broil for 1 minute, checking frequently. Alternatively use a cooking grade blowtorch to char the skin.
