Get Your Don Draper On with an Old Fashioned from @Hornitos Black Barrel

Black Barrel Old Fashioned

Any other Mad Men fans out there SUPER excited for this weekend’s big premiere? Good news –  I think I found the perfect Old Fashioned to kick back and watch it with. Here’s the thing though – it’s a new-fangled Old Fashioned, brought to you by the people over at Hornitos  and made with their Black Barrel Tequila (warning – there’s autoplayed music that might make you dance).

Now I know some of you think Don would NEVER drink an Old Fashioned with tequila, but hear me out. A modern day Don Draper takes risks, and enjoys the finer things in life. You have to be ahead of the trends, and let yourself enjoy the finer, classier things in life. That’s what you’re getting with a Black Barrel Old Fashioned. Because of the aging process, the tequila has the dark, amber color and smoky flavor you’re used to with whiskey. On top of that, you have the tequila flavors that compliment the citrus in the drink perfectly. It’s a whole new level of Old Fashioned. Believe me – YUM.

Enough prelude, here’s the recipe –

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. Turn on the Mad Men premiere, kick up your feet, and enjoy!
