I've always liked the pairings of chocolate with hot peppers and coffee with chocolate. I decided to combine the two in this drink, using bourbon as a base. The flavors of the coffee and chocolate pair really well with the heat from the pepper. I used a Fresno after experimenting with a few different peppers, but I think any red chile would work here depending on your heat tolerance and preference. Don't skimp on the garnish, I think it makes the drink.



 1 oz Bourbon Whiskey
 1 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 ½ oz Creme de cacao
 2 dashes Chocolate bitters
 4 Fresno chile slices
 Dark chocolate



In a mixing glass, muddle 2 slices of a Fresno (seeds removed) with chocolate bitters.


Add the bourbon, Mr. Black, and creme de cacao.


Stir and strain into a rocks glass with ice.


Garnish with grated dark chocolate and Fresno slices.
