Midnight Express | Cocktail Party

Midnight Express

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.
