Coffee & Cigarettes

Adapted from a recipe by Jayce Kadyschuk , Clive’s Classic Lounge, Victoria, Canada

Coffee & Cigarettes Cocktail Jayce Kadyschuk

“I created this cocktail to represent Columbia on our new “Global Cocktails” concept menu at Clive’s Classic Lounge. Creating cocktails that represent; traditional culinary & beverage flavors, and with the Coffee & Cigarettes Cocktail – goods produced & exported. As Columbia is known for its exports of both coffee and tobacco products.  To be cheeky, and with the right guests, I’ll add the small powdered sugar rim to represent another, not so legal, export Columbia is known for. It always draws a laugh and allows me to interact about our approach to the global concept menu and the fun we had coming up with the cocktails.” Jayce Kadyschuk

1.5 oz  McClellend’s Islay ScotchCoffee & Cigarettes Cocktail

0.5 oz Luxardo Amaro Abano

0.5 oz Cold brew Columbian coffee

1 dash Scrappy’s Chocolate Bitters

1 bar spoon simple syrup

1 brandied cherry, as garnish

Rim 1/6 of the edge of a chilled coupe with powdered sugar; stir all the ingredients over ice, and strain into the prepared glass.  Add the garnish.

gaz sez:  I had no McClelland’s scotch so I used a Bowmore 12-year-old (McClelland’s Islay bottling is made at the Bowmore distillery).  I used my regular coffee which is Dean’s Beans Italian Espresso Roast.  This baby worked perfectly so I’ve now found another scotch-based drink that I’m sure I’ll go back to over and over again.  Nicely done, Jayce!
