The muse for this cocktail was the oddball pairing of lemon and espresso in the traditional coffee drink 'Espresso Romano,' usually served as a double shot of espresso with a lemon twist. The tartness from the lemon is balanced by the smoothness of the reposado tequila, the fullness of Mr Black, and sweetened with vanilla syrup. Finished with a single dash of chocolate bitters, this drink is decadent, flavorful, and unconventional. Hermano is Spanish for brother, creating a snappy, fitting name.



 2 oz Reposado tequila
 1 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 0.75 oz Lemon juice
 0.25 oz Vanilla syrup
 1 dash Chocolate bitters



Add all the ingredients to a shaker, add ice, and shake until cold
