Broken Oath (Death And Co. Recipe)


Death & Co. has many Martini and Old Fashioned variations among their recipes. This is one of their Manhattan variations with Mezcal--a perfectly suitable substitute for whiskey. In addition to the vermouth and main spirit, they added Galliano and rich sherry. This takes this drink in a cordial direction, and that is fitting because they serve it in a Nick& Nora glass. (I'm using a cordial glass because I don't have a Nick & Nora.) Chocolate and cinnamon from the Aztec bitter is a perfect finishing touch to this new classic showing off the spirits coming to us by way of Mexico and Spain.

  • 1 1/2 oz. mezcal (Del Maguey Vida used)
  • 3/4 oz. Lustau Amontillado sherry (Lustau East India Soleara used)
  • 3/4 oz. cocchi vermouth di Torino
  • 1/2 oz. Galliano
  • 2 dashes Aztec bitters

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass.
