The name of this sweet, slightly syrupy cocktail served at Poste Moderne Brasserie means "heaven." "It tastes that good," says lead bartender Jason Wiles. The touch of coffee leaves a pleasant aftertaste.
- 3/4 ounce amaro (a bitter herbal liqueur)
- 1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
- 1/2 ounce amaretto liqueur
- Dash chocolate bitters, such as Bitter Truth
- 3/4 ounce brewed coffee
- Twist of orange peel, for garnish
Fill a mixing glass halfway with ice. Add the amaro, Grand Marnier, amaretto, bitters and coffee. Stir, then strain into a chilled cocktail (martini) glass.
Garnish with the twist of orange peel.
From Jason Wiles, lead bartender at Poste Moderne Brasserie in Penn Quarter.
