Here’s the perfect cocktail to impress at your next dinner party!
The Café Con Pedro, the Argentine Espresso Martini! Creamy, smoky and sweet. The perfect after dessert treat! A new addition to the San Telmo cocktail list but an instant favourite!
All you need is…
45ml Stolen Smoked Rum
15ml Pedro Ximénez
15ml Dulce de Leche
1 Espresso shot (30ml)
A brandy balloon or coupette
Chocolate powder and cracked espresso beans to garnish
The Stolen Smoked Rum adds a terrific smoky flavour to the cocktail pairing perfectly with the aromatics of the coffee and the sweet vanilla flavour in the dulce de leche.
A latin cocktail is not complete without Pedro Ximénez. It is made by drying the grapes under the hot sun, concentrating the sweetness, which are then used to create a thick, black liquid with a strong taste of raisins and molasses that is fortified. This flavour matches with the rich crema of the espresso!
Once the espresso and Dulce de leche have been added, pop a few scoops of ice into the shaker and start shaking! It’s important to shake the cocktail vigorously for about 20 seconds. This will create a delicious foamy top to your cocktail!
Strain your mix into a brandy balloon or coupette, then garnish with some chocolate powder and a few cracked expresso beans.
LET’S GET SHAKING!
