It’s been a rather difficult week this week. First of all I have withdrawl. Last week I was in my element. I was correcting the coffee for the thirsty folks at the VIP/ The Daily Basics Mixology tent.
What is corrected coffee? Corrected coffee is coffee with a kick. And I was the man to provide it.
There wasn’t anyone during the entire event at Brimfield who wasn’t offered a corrected coffee. There is something to be said for this kind of mind eraser/mind opener. After all, at 7 or 8 in the morning, when the coffee is hot, there is ample time to correct the cup in your hand, to augment it, make it better, make it stronger, make it dangerous. Make each mug with PASSION!
I know how to do this. After all, I’m the Cocktail Whisperer!
Each recipe will completely twist your mind, your friend’s and perhaps their friend’s as well. But for this exercise, each recipe serves two persons. Danger Level 5 out of 5! (so be careful)
2 mugs of freshly brewed coffee (try to make it yourself. Starbucks doesn’t count)
4 shots of Snap (USDA Certified Organic Ginger Snap Liqueur)
2 shots of Tenneyson Absinthe
1 shot of Fernet Branca
Bitter End Mexican Mole’ Bitters
Freshly whipped cream
Whip your cream, whip it good, I say whip it… (apologies to DEVO)
Add two shots of the Snap into each mug
Add the coffee to each mug
Add four drops of the Bitter End Mexican Mole’ Bitters to each mug
Top with fresh whipped cream. If you have those imitation cans, shame on you!
Sip and try not to drink too quickly, there’s plenty of time to sleep later in the day…
