Café du Maine

Café du Maine cocktail with cognac, coffee liqueur, espresso, vanilla syrup, and half-and-half cream

The Café du Maine is a now-retired classic from No. 9 Park in Boston. Its inventor, bartender Ted Kilpatrick, describes it as a cross between a Milk Punch and an Espresso Martini. The name is a hat-tip to Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy, a coffee liqueur near and dear to the hearts of Mainers (despite being headquartered in Boston).

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
