Classic cocktails and classically styled cocktails will always remain a perennial favorite. Señor’s Surrender keeps the treasured classic Old Fashioned in mind with a Camarena Tequila twist. Spiced Orange Syrup takes the place of fresh muddled fruit and sugar. The result is barely there hit of smoke intertwining with warming notes of tequila, gentle sweetness carried by lilt of orange and great spice depth continuing through to the finish from the spiced syrup and bitters.
