Amore e pianto, vivono accanto

Cafe Brasileiro

The Café Brasileiro is sweet, a mix of cachaca, chocolate liqueur and a special vanilla cream – all of that with fresh hot coffee. I recommend making the best cup of coffee possible, your standard drip coffee pot may not do it here. I prefer to use a French press with slightly ground beans (fair trade, organic) because it produces a frothier, richer cup of coffee that is excellent in this.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 oz Sagatiba Pura Cachaca
  • 1/2 oz dark chocolate liqueur
  • 2 1/2 oz fresh hot coffee
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 2 oz heavy cream*
  • seeds from one vanilla pod*
  • * to make 2 oz vanilla cream for floating

Preparation:

  1. To make vanilla cream:
    • Scrape the seeds from a vanilla pod into a cocktail shaker.
    • Add heavy cream and shake vigorously for 20 seconds.
  2. Stir all other ingredients together in an Irish coffee glass.
  3. Slowly and gently layer the vanilla cream onto the surface of the drink.
