Topped with espresso, this comforting cocktail will give you a boozy jolt of java.


  • 1 ½ oz. Canadian whisky, such as Forty Creek Barrel Select
  • ¾ oz. Kahlúa
  • ¾ oz. Forty Creek Cream Liquor
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • Handful of ice cubes
  • Small pinch finely ground espresso, for garnish


Yield: Makes 1 Drink

  1.  Pour all ingredients except ice and espresso 
into a mixing glass. Add ice and stir until chilled. Strain through a julep strainer into a chilled mug or glass. Sprinkle with espresso to garnish. Serve with a coffee stir stick, if you like.
