This mezcal- and amaro-based coffee cocktail was cooked up as a brunch drink for Esters Wine Shop & Bar in Santa Monica, Calif. This Mexican-themed drink packs a zing from agave and mole bitters and can be mellowed with a bit of cream. While the recipe calls for Foro amaro, other amari can be easily substituted, such as Ramazzotti, Cynar or Averna.
- 1 ounce Foro amaro
- 3/4 ounces mezcal
- 1/4 ounce Tapatio blanco tequila
- 2 ounces cold-brew coffee
- 15 drops chocolate mole bitters
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.
Strain into an Old Fashioned glass over a large ice cube.
