Café du Maine
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).
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a dusting of ground chicory, or grate a coffee bean over the drink.
