Atomic Espresso

AuthorLorenz T.

This drink is on one hand inspired by the famous quote, that also inspired the Espresso Martini "Wake me up, and then f*** me up." and on the other hand by the Dude's legendary White Russian. This both calls for a simple drink - which this is not - so my recipe is to be understood as a fancy version. If you just want to have a relaxed drink with some friends you're of course welcome to simplify it, swap the purée for a bit more liqueur, the cream for milk, simply shake all the ingredients, do what you gotta do!
