I don't think this one got discussed yet, and I used to get it confused with the other tequila + mezcal OF from Phil Ward, the Oaxaca Old Fashioned (reposado tequila, mezcal, agave syrup, mole bitters).


Tequila Gumption with 1 oz each of reposado tequila and mezcal, 1/4 oz maraschino liqueur, 2 dashes Angostura bitters, and 1 dash orange bitters.


There is something very nice going on with this tequila + mezcal + maraschino combo, also seen in the Crafty and Elusive Elk (as a sour).

The Oaxaca is a favourite; now I'll have to try this one. Thanks, FP.


Got some more Mezcal this morning, too ...
