Arbol Old Fashioned
The flavors of the cocktail are a perfect balance between sweet and spicy! The rich blood orange and repo tequila hits your mouth, the cinnamon softly coats your tongue and the lingering spice from the chile de arbol leaves you wanting another sip over and over again.
In a small saucepan on medium heat, add ingredients to pan. Stir continuously to mix in the sugar. Once the sugar is dissolved turn heat off and set aside to cool. Once syrup is cool you can strain through cheesecloth to extract some of the powder; the spice will still be there though.
Add all ingredients to a mixing pitcher or mixing glass, fill glass 3/4 full with ice, stir for a few seconds.
Using a julep strainer strain into an old fashioned glass over fresh ice.
Garnish with blood orange peel.
