Following the previous post, I was still trying to play with coffee.
This cocktail is quite sweet. It won’t pay you any compliments, or buy you dinner, but it is still sweet.
Here’s how it went down —
Rock Me Sexy Mezcal
1.5 oz. Espadin Mezcal
1 oz. Sweetened Condensed Milk
4 oz. Strong, cold coffee
Stir all ingredients over ice
Strain into a turbinado-rimmed cocktail glass
Notes: If you’re looking to break into the Mezcal-drinking game, and don’t know where to start, I would say this is the perfect beginner drink. It’s got all the things you want from a mezcal – the smoke and the booze, but the coffee and sweetened condensed milk really help to cover it up, so you can enjoy it. Maybe lower the non-alcoholic ingredient ratios, and begin to enjoy the mezcal for what it is a little later. Perhaps remove the sweetened condensed milk, and just try the black dark-roast coffee with mezcal, as well. =]
Feel free to leave a comment on what you think about this cocktail, or if you make one, please share your experience here or on Facebook.
Enjoy! See ya next time! =]
