We're big fans of the Classic Old Fashioned cocktail -- it's balanced, flavorful, and, when made right, hard to top. But we're also equally big fans of quality tequila, which is why one of our all-time favorite twists on the Old Fashioned is this one made with tequila. The combination of aged tequila, grapefruit, and orange bitters all stirred together makes for a smoky, citrus-y twist on the classic that instantly has us wishing we we're weekend-ing in Mexico City. Or at the very least eating a large plate of mole in Oaxaca!
