A MODERN TAKE ON THE WELL-LOVED OLD FASHIONED: THE TUXEDO #2.5
As apt as its name, the Tuxedo #2.5 was the gentleman’s cocktail of the night. This cocktail was the perfect combination of sweet, bitter, citrusy and spicy flavours. The star of the cocktail was none other than the authentically crafted Olmeca Altos Blanco, that gave the drink its bright, fresh and spicy flavours that finished with tinges of candied ginger. Aromatic, smooth and botanical, the Tuxedo #2.5 packs a punch while having a subtler and sweeter aftertaste. Real gentlemen appreciate some sweetness too.
