X-Mas Sin

x-mas sin cocktial

OK, sure, the name of this cocktail has a naughty Christmas sort of vibe. But that doesn't mean you can't sip this steamy drink all throughout the colder months, enjoying the pick-me-up hint of coffee paired with the rich bite of Armagnac.


  • 1 1/2 ounces Château de Laubade XO Bas Armagnac
  • 1/2 ounce chestnut liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce coffee liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce génépy liqueur
  • 5 coffee beans
  • 2 1/2 ounces hot water
  • Garnish: grated nutmeg


  1. In a small saucepan, combine all of the ingredients except for the water, and heat without bringing to a boil.

  2. Strain the mixture into a toddy glass, and top with hot water to fill.
