An Old Fashioned?
That might be Don Draper’s checklist for the final season of Mad Men… knowing the twists, turns and cliffhangers awaiting viewers; Hornitos hoped to offer our readers a taste of Draper’s favorite cocktail – this time with a twist of their own. A Black Barrel® Old Fashioned uses the NEW Hornitos® Black Barrel® – this inventive spirit starts as 100% blue agave tequila, which is aged three distinct times to impart flavorful whiskey notes!
They suggest this recipe for a sexy twist on the classic Old Fashioned cocktail:
Black Barrel® Old Fashioned
- 1 part simple syrup
- 1 ½ parts Hornitos® Black Barrel® Tequila
- 0.5 part amaro
- 2 dashes bitters
- 2 dashes Orange bitters
- Orange peel
- Add simple syrup, Hornitos® Black Barrel® Tequila, amaro and bitters together and stir, adding in ice. Strain over fresh ice and garnish with an orange peel.
Hornitos® Black Barrel® Tequila is redefining the traditional tequila experience. Triple aged to create a unique Añejo tequila with whiskey characteristics, Hornitos® tequila is aged for 12 months in new toasted American Oak barrels. Then, it is carefully placed into deep charred American Oak barrels for four months. In the final aging process, the liquid is transferred to specially toasted American Oak barrels for two months to enhance the whiskey-like notes.
