Black Agave Old Fashion

By: The Food Hunter

We recently spent a relaxing weekend (read about it here) at the Hermosa Inn in Paradise Valley, Arizona, which included dinner and cocktails at the infamous Lon's restaurant. One of the stellar libations I was able to indulge in was the Black Agave Old Fashioned. Crafted from Azunia Tequila, a family owned, smooth and clean tequila, this drink was fragrant with cinnamon and bitters.

If you are a fan of the classic Old Fashioned I think you will love this version. 

Black Agave Old Fashioned

1oz Azunia Black Agave Tequila
1 oz Rittenhouse Rye
1/4 ounce cinnamon syrup
2 dashes Peychauds bitters
burnt orange peal 

In an old fashioned or short rocks glass, stir together cinnamon syrup and bitters. Add tequila, rye and ice, stir well. Twist the citrus peel to release the oils add to glass. Drop cherry into the cocktail and serve.
