Single Origin (Death & Co. Recipe)


I must admit that I was seeking a drink I could do with pineapple juice I had open and I didn't have cacao nibs or the time to infuse them. That's what bitters are for, actually. Sometime I'd like to try this drink again with cacao nibs. My experience tells me that it makes the base spirit extremely bitter. And that would be fine. With the sweetness of pineapple juice and Gallaino, you should be able to get by. Without the nibs, I felt that this drink was a bit on the sweet side despite the lemon juice.

But let's celebrate what a smack in the mouth such a cocktail brings. Here is a fresh squeezed fruit and light spirits drink also having huge body and a liquor-heavy boost of Galliano and tequila at once.

  • 2 oz. cacao nib-infused blanco tequila (El Jimador and a dash of Aztec bitters used)
  • 1 tsp. Galliano
  • 1/2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. cane sugar syrup

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Double strain into a coup.
