Fig Old Fashioned Featuring Espanita Tequila

This holiday season, add this perfect cozy drink to your winter cocktails repertoire. For this yummy riff on traditional old-fashioned cocktail, we used Espanita Double Barrel Añejo tequila finished in KY bourbon casks.

This rich, elegantly executed, and decadently delicious Añejo tequila will charm your palate with tantalizing, aromatic bourbon notes while expressing its grassy, fruit-driven Blue Agave foundation; a perfect base for a flavor-packed Old-Fashioned cocktail. Ripe figs contribute dried fruit, melon, berry, and sugar flavors that are perfectly offset by fresh aromatic zestiness of a ripe orange. Aromatic bitters add the final sublime touch binding all ingredients together in one flawless, satisfying sip of goodness.
