As-tu goûté au DRINK PARFAIT pour un APRÈS-SKI? 🍸 C'est Maximiliano de Club Local qui nous a développé cette recette incroyable là! 🥰 Pour l'instant, la recette est uniquement disponible sous format vidéo, le billet de blog arrive cette semaine! 😎♬ son original - Café Barista Microtorréfacteur
1.5 oz. Les Îles triple sec
1 oz. Sainte-Marie spiced rum
1 single long espresso, brewed with our Après-Ski coffee (2 oz.)
2 tbsp. cappuccino foam
Foam your milk (or non-dairy alternative) as if you were making cappuccino foam.
Pull a single long espresso into a cup. We recommend our Après-Ski blend, which has notes of citrus and nuts that harmonize beautifully with the other ingredients in this recipe.
Add the rum and the triple sec to the espresso. Mix well with a spoon.
Garnish with two tablespoons of cappuccino foam.
Pro tip: Warm your alcohol with the steam wand on your espresso machine for an extra-toasty cocktail; the perfect way to end a day of winter fun!
