TIPS & MUSINGS
My friends Matt and Susan are great hosts. Matt always hands me a killer Manhattan within minutes of my arrival. They feed me delicious meals (and even send me home with leftovers — hint hint, Elettra) and then they cap the night off with this crisp cocktail. It’s sweet, but not too sweet, like a good after-dinner drink should be. Good times.
3 oz strong espresso, chilled (about a double shot’s worth)
1.5 oz Baileys 1 oz Silver tequila 1 oz Patron XO Cafe (other coffee liquors may be ok, but will make the drink sweeter than with Patron’s brand)
- Shake over ice and strain into two small martini glasses (or one very large one).
