Many know about tequila and mezcal but few know about charanda, a distilled spirit made from sugarcane in the state of Michoacán, México. My grandmother is from Michoacán and brought my father this bottle of charanda. I wanted to showcase this traditional spirit by combining its sweet vanilla notes with that of Mr. Black and Aztec chocolate bitters. Rather than use heavy cream to complement the coffee flavor, I opted to use a traditional Mexican beverage, horchata, to sweeten the cocktail.
