Combining butterscotch and coffee flavour with a choc-nut garnish my cocktail is inspired by the word pilot in all senses, from one who controls an aircraft to a test or experiment of something with either meaning invoking excitement and adventure. In summary I was inspired by both work and play and the reasonable balance of both.
In a cocktail shaker add 60 ml Mr Black, 15 ml butterscotch schnapps, 2 tblspns espresso, 1 tblspn almond milk & ice
Shake vigorously to combine ingredients and create a froth
Pour into martini glass
Garnish with pilot wings - a pecan halved, dipped in melted chocolate and stuck to a chocolate button to resemble crew wings and dotted with gold leaf in the centre to finish
