We all love a nightcap but this one won’t send you to sleep, that’s for sure. This warm, comforting drink is my Mexican twist on an Irish-style coffee. Made with reposado tequila, coffee tequila, hot coffee and infused with cinnamon and chipotle, this is a warming drink to end the night. For a non-caffeinated version you can substitute your favourite drinking chocolate for the coffee.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
60ml hot espresso infused with cinnamon, (see below)
60ml chipotle-infused reposado tequila, (see below)
15ml patron xo cafe tequila
whipped cream, to serve
finely shredded candied orange peel, to garnish

Chipotle-infused tequila

Quantity Ingredient
750ml reposado tequila, (see Latin Larder)
1 dried chipotle chilli, (see Latin Larder)

Cinnamon-infused espresso

Quantity Ingredient
60ml espresso coffee, hot
1 cinnamon stick

Method

  1. To make the chipotle-infused tequila, pour the tequila into a 1 litre jar with a lid. Split the chipotle lengthways and add it to the tequila. Seal and set aside for 2–3 days, depending on how hot you like it. Strain, returning the liquid to the original bottle.
  2. For the cinnamon-infused espresso, transfer the hot espresso into a small saucepan, add the cinnamon stick and set aside to cool. Gently warm the coffee back up and remove the cinnamon stick.
  3. Combine the infused espresso with the chipotle-infused tequila and Patrón XO Café in a glass. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with candied orange peel to garnish.

* Tips

  • Instead of infusing the tequila with chipotle (which may not be to everyone’s taste) you can simply add a 3 cm piece of chipotle to the coffee with the cinnamon.
