The Argentine Old Fashioned is a full-bodied, meaty drink that’s almost a meal in itself. The rich cocktail, made with Asada-infused Azuñia Añejo tequila, vermouth, Amaro Montenegro, and Angostura Bitters, conjures up the most romantic Spanish interludes. Whether you enjoy it paired with a decadent meal or stir one up to sip over a deep conversation, we suggest you bring along a special someone — Cha, cha, cha.
- 2 oz. Asada-infused Azuñia Añejo* Tequila
- 0.5 oz. Cocchi di Torino Vermouth
- 0.5 oz. Amaro Montenegro
- 2-3 dashes Angostura Bitters
- Preparation: Stir
- *Asada-infused Azuñia Añejo:
- Infuse 1 bottle Añejo with leftover Asada rendered fat (after cooking), probably ½ cup.
- Put ingredients together into a plastic container and let sit overnight.
- The next morning put infusion into the freezer.
- Allow fat to separate and strain the liquid out of the container through a coffee filter.
- Infused Tequila should taste meaty and smoky, but have no residual fat in the liquid.
Garnish: Orange Peel
