This simple, tasty and well-balanced cocktail is a Mexican-inspired twist on the classic old fashioned. It’s full of character, with herbaceous notes and more than a hint of smokiness. As the old Mexican saying goes, “Para todo mal mezcal, y para todo bien también” (“For everything bad, mezcal, and for everything good too”).

Agua santa

Serves 1

50ml good mezcal – we use Casamigos
15ml Cointreau
3 dashes orange bitters
1 strip pink grapefruit peel
, to garnish

Fill a lowball glass with ice (at the restaurant, we use large 5cm x 5cm cubes, but regular ones will do), add all the liquids and stir to combine. Garnish with the pink grapefruit peel and serve.
