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


  1. Add all ingredients to a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.

  2. Strain into an Old Fashioned glass over a large ice cube.
