The mysterious bitter oily flavor of real freshly brewed espresso, balanced out by the sweetness of good rum, and a tad of the Italian orange bitter digestif known as Ramazzoti is the beginnings of a perfect after dinner cocktail drink for post thanksgiving dinner. Sweeten to taste with stevia, top with whipped cream and you’ll be ready for your holiday nap.
4 oz freshly brewed hot espresso
1-1/2 oz dark rum
½ oz ramazzoti orange bitters
1 packet stevia (or to taste)
Orange rind twist
Pour hot, brewed coffee into a tall glass coffee cup. Add rum, bitters, stevia. Top with whipped cream. Twist orange on top. It’s that simple.
