Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake and strain
into a rocks glass filled with ice. Add an orange peel
or flame the orange
peel for dramatic effect!
Cook's Note: Cocoa Shrub
is very similar to dark chocolate vinegar
, which you can purchase at specialty stores. Or make your own by buying the nibs and balsamic reduction
individually and infusing them via sous vide
(boil in bag) or by letting them just infuse naturally over time.
The coffee to use for this cocktail
should be brewed with double the amount of coffee-to-water ration you would normally use to make regular coffee. For example, normally brew 1 tbsp coffee to 1 cup water; for this recipe brew 2 tbsp coffee
to 1 cup water. Once coffee is brewed, mix in equal parts of superfine sugar
(ex., 1 cup coffee to 1 cup superfine sugar).
