A hot-chocolate-inspired concoction that blends the crisp, clean bite of tequila and coffee flavors with the lingering sweetness of cinnamon syrup—complete with a mustache-making froth of whipped cream. Hot? No. But this elixir still possesses the ability to make you feel all warm and cozy inside.
1¼ oz tequila 1¼ oz coffee liqueur 4 dashes chocolate bitters (optional) 2 oz whipping cream ½ oz cinnamon syrup
Fill a small rocks glass with ice. In a stainless steel shaker also filled with ice, add first 3 ingredients. Shake vigorously and strain over into prepared rocks glass.
Now the fun part: take the whipping cream and the cinnamon syrup and place into a stainless steel mixing glass along with 3 small ice cubes and the wire from a drink strainer. Shake with intent for 60 seconds and pour on top of awaiting beverage.
