Podcast: Public Enemas & Jiggers With Altitude

This week, we hark back to the halcyon days when strangers blew smoke up the bottoms of wet people and, in the whining words of Liam Gallagher, things get supersonic with a gin and tonic as we celebrate the birth of Concorde.

Oaxaca Old Fashioned (created by Phil Ward in New York)

40ml Fortaleza Reposado Tequila

12.5ml Lost Explorer Mezcal

1 barspoon agave nectar

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Garnish: orange twist

Method: Set the orange peel to one side before bringing all the ingredients in a glass (Old Fashioned) containing a large ice cube. Stir until chilled. Flame an orange twist over the surface of the drink.
