Café de la Mañana

Café de la Mañana cocktail with reposado tequila, coffee liqueur, fresh-brewed coffee, and agave-vanilla whipped cream

This tasty tequila-coffee drink is the invention of Quentin Ertel from The Saint Social Club in Seattle. It’s a lovely cuppa all on its own, but Ertel’s agave whipped cream is the true star of the show.

Ertel’s recipe calls for vanilla extract in the whipped cream, but we’ve also tried it with almond extract and it’s just as lovely.

Ingredients

Instructions

Start by whipping the cream, agave nectar and vanilla extract in a bowl until firm peaks form.

Add the tequila and coffee liqueur to a heatproof glass or mug and top with freshly-brewed hot coffee. Top with a spoonful (or two!) of the whipped cream and dust with freshly-grated nutmeg.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
