My cocktail is a Disaronno & Coffee sour. My go to shot is a half espresso half disaronno mix , as i find the sweetness of the disaronno balances out the bitterness of the coffee. it is also a low alcohol shot which is great as it means i can drive after having a couple.

i wanted to ramp up this shot into a full size cocktail , but wanted it to be a little different. i found that a sour would really balance the sweetness and the bitterness to create a smooth cocktail that develops flavour.



 45 ml Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 30 ml Amaretto(Disaronno)
 30 ml Espresso
 22.50 ml Lemon Juice
 7.50 ml Licor 43
 30 ml Egg white
 15 ml Sugar Syrup



Add all ingredients into a shaker


Wet shake first, then dump the ice and dry shake


Double strain into a chilled coupe glass


Garnish with 3 coffee beans & Luxardo cherry syrup hearts
