This caffeine closer is a nod to New Orleans. Built like a New Orleans coffee with the addition of chicory to add more bold, dark flavors. This is then lifted with dark Demerara syrup and Pastis to lend a cooling anise finish. This classic pairing of coffee and bourbon is a bold alternative to an espresso martini after dinner.
1.5 oz Cold Brew Espresso
1.5 oz Stellum Bourbon
0.75 oz Chicory Infused Coffee Liqueur*
0.5 oz Demerara syrup
Dash of Pastis
Garnish: Candied Pecan
Style: Espresso Martini/Cafe Corretto
Add all ingredients to a boston shaker tin and fill all the way with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with a candied pecan.
Chicory Infused Coffee Liqueur
Add two tablespoons of dried chicory root to one bottle (750 mL) of coffee liqueur. Shake well and rest for 10 minutes. Strain out chicory and store in a glass container.
