Laugh Like You

Inspired by the dual perspectives of “I’m Sorry” by Joyner Lucas, my love for the bittersweet and basic Espresso Martini and a near masochistic obsession with flip cocktails, the ‘Laugh Like You’ is a decadent cocktail that opens with the scent of fresh espresso, contains notes of butter, coconut, and vanilla and finishes with a slightly dry nuttiness.

 0.50 oz Licor 43
 1 Whole Egg

 2 dashes Mocha Bitters
1

Add all ingredients to a shaker tin, add ice, shake.

2

Use a Hawthorne strainer (without closing the gate) to pour the chilled cocktail back into the tin.

3

Dry shake for proper aeration.

4

Pour into a chilled 7 oz. Coupe.

5

Use a micro-plane to grate a fresh espresso bean over the head.

6

Enjoy!

For the rum, treat it as a typical fat wash, and be sure to brown the butter to increase the richness of the aroma. For my recipe, I prefer 240 g of Unsalted Kerrygold Irish butter per 750 ml of Rumhaven. Kerrygold is a creamy butter made from grass fed cows with no hormones and Rumhaven adds the added layer of coconut flavor.
