Midnight Express

Midnight Express cocktail with hot coffee, cognac, amaretto, simple syrup, and whipped cream

The Midnight Express, from Jim Meehan’s PDT Cocktail Book, is everything we ever wanted in a hot coffee cocktail. It’s rich, nutty, comforting, and easy to make, and the whipped cream on top lets you drink it right away, even piping-hot.

Ingredients

Instructions

Start by beating the cream in a separate bowl or cup until thickened, while you brew the coffee.

In a mug or toddy glass, add the coffee, cognac (or brandy), amaretto, and simple syrup (or brown sugar syrup). Give it a stir, and top with a layer of the whipped cream. Garnish with a dusting of freshly-grated nutmeg.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
