About this Veracrus Old Fashioned tequila cocktail: the native Totonacs were the first to cultivate vanilla from an orchid found in the Veracruz region of Mexico during the time of the Mayans and Aztecs. This cocktail is a celebration of that flavor heritage, with notes of gourmet vanilla and trade spices infusing this simple presentation of tequila, agave, and bitters.
