Coffeehouse Laureate

Named after the tradition of giving the Poet Laureate a barrel of sherry, this sessionable cocktail combines crisp, dry Fino sherry with bittersweet coffee and floral caramel for a delightful and light sipper. The warm coffee roast notes highlight the almond and pastry of the sherry. The roasted floral flavor of the Meletti bolsters the floral notes in the Mr Black, and the lemon and soda provide further brightness and effervescence. Specifically, this transports me to Seattle, walking through Pike Place Market with a croissants aux amandes and espresso.

    1. Thank you! The clear ice fractured to an edge like that naturally, so I had to make use of it. And it seemed the perfect place to drape the lemon twist.
