The great thing about classic cocktails such as the Old-Fashioned is that they continually inspire modern renditions of old favorites, which is what most of modern mixology is based on. This rendition of a Reposado Old-fashioned is the result of that inspiration.

This drink takes an aged, reposado tequila and tops it with a muddled mixture of bing cherries and nectarines with agave nectar. The mix brings out both the light and dark fruitiness of many reposado tequilas for a great sipping drink. If you like, top the drink with club soda.

What You'll Need

  • 3 ounces tequila (reposado)
  • 2 slices nectarine
  • 2 cherries (bing)
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • For Garnish:
  • Bing cherry
  • Nectarine slice

How to Make It

  1. In an old-fashioned glass add the cherries, nectarines, and agave nectar.
  2. Muddle well, until ingredients are mixed well.
  3. Fill the glass with ice cubes.
  4. Add the tequila.
  5. Stir well.
  6. Garnish with a slice of nectarine and bing cherry.
