Reposado Old-Fashioned

The great thing about classic cocktails such as the Old-fashioned is that they continually inspire modern renditions of old favorites, which is what most of modern mixology is based on. It is the classics that inspire me more than other drinks and my rendition of a Reposado Old-fashioned is the result of that.

In this drink I take an aged, reposado tequila to top a muddled mixture of bing cherries and nectarines with agave nectar. I feel that the mix brings out both the light and dark fruitiness of many reposado tequilas for a great sipping drink. If you like, top the drink with club soda.
