A few friends and I did a chopped-like cocktail contest this year. It was the final round, and I needed to use Espresso with Either Tequila or Vodka. I was up for the challenge, thought back to some memories of creative meals of my past, and all I thought of was breakfast! For some reason, coffee, orange juice, and pancakes came to mind. I adapted this recipe to use Mr. Black, and I think it tastes even better now than when I was rushing against the clock.



 1 Egg white
 0.50 oz Fresh Orange juice
 0.50 oz Lemon Juice
 0.75 oz Simple Syrup
 1 oz Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur
 1 oz Tequila Blanco
 Heavy Whipping Cream
 Orange Bitters



Firstly, add egg white, the orange juice, and the lemon juice in a shaker and dry-shake.


Add the simple syrup, tequila, and Mr. Black to the shaker, along with ice. Shake that all until cold.


Strain into your chilled coupe.


Separately, combine some heavy whipping cream with a couple of dashes of Orange Bitters


Layer the whipping cream on top of the drink. (I found the using the back of a bar spoon works well, like how you would combine grenadine in a Tequila sunrise).


Lastly, garnish with fresh nutmeg!
