A grand drink
By J.M. Hirsch
For a grander take on this drink, substitute a mug of coffee for the espresso and top it with whipped cream spiked with coconut milk and garnished with chocolate shavings.
Coconut cream mocha espresso
Start to finish: 10 minutes
1 tablespoon heavy cream
1 tablespoon coconut milk
1 ounce Irish cream liqueur
1 ounce chocolate liqueur
3 1/2 to 4 ounces freshly brewed espresso (about a double shot)
Cocoa powder (optional)
In a small glass, mix together the heavy cream and coconut milk. Set aside.
In a small, heat-safe serving glass, combine the Irish cream and chocolate liqueur. Microwave for 1 minute, or until hot. Add the espresso and stir gently.
Float the cream mixture on the top of the drink. To do this, hold a spoon upside down directly over the drink. Slowly pour the cream mixture over the back of the spoon.
