Tequila Old Fashioned by Molly


"An adaptation on the classic bourbon old fashioned, we have used the raw power of tequila, complemented by the earthy notes of agave, the spices of cinnamon and a touch of chocolate. The cocktail was designed to break the misconception that tequila is a spirit that can only be drunk as a shot. Lemon and salt are for fish and chips." – Lorenzo Focarile, Molly Director.

60 ml Herradura double barrel tequila*
15 ml cinnamon-infused sugar syrup
1 dash aromatic bitters
1 dash chocolate bitters
1 dash orange bitters
Charred cinnamon quill, to garnish

*Note: the Herradura Double Barrel Reposado used in this cocktail is made from a single barrel of fully-matured Herradura Reposado tequila, aged in a toasted and charred Jack Daniel's barrel, then aged again for one month in a brand new toasted American Oak barrel.


Place all the ingredients into a mixing glass. Stir for 20 seconds, then pour over ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with the charred cinnamon quill.
