As National Tequila Day approaches on July 24, we thought we’d share one of our favorite tequila cocktails, The Mystic — a heady blend of Casa Dragones Reposado, Dos Hombres mezcal, smoked dates, and Madagascar vanilla found at one of Las Vegas’ most high end venues, The Wynn’s Tower Suites Bar.

Of the cocktail, its creator, Wynn’s Master Mixologist, Mariena Mercer Boarini, says: “The Mystic is a whimsical remix of the ‘classic of classics’ – the Old Fashioned, using ancestral ingredients and complex flavors.”

Here, we share how to make The Mystic, which retails for $24 at The Wynn, at home!
