When I first heard Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood's 2006 album Out Louder, one particular song's title stirred my desire: "Tequila & Chocolate". The song begins with a low, slow, tickling guitar riff, mysterious and elegant; James Bond meets a desperado. With the Black & Blanco, I wanted to create something distinguished and smooth, with the spice and richness of the culture that birthed its base spirit: Tequila Blanco.



 1.75 oz Blanco Tequila
 0.75 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 0.50 oz Allspice Dram
 2 dashes Angostura Cocoa Bitters
 1 Sprig of Mint



Add all ingredients except mint into mixing glass


Add ice and stir for ~ 30-40 seconds


Strain into chilled coupe or Nick & Nora glass


Clap mint sprig to release oils and clip onto the side of your glass


Sip and Enjoy
