Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a shaker and fill with ice. Shake to chill, strain into chilled glass and garnish.

Notes

Unlike many spirits-only drinks, the Breaking Dawn should be shaken rather than stirred, to yield a foamy surface that looks a little like the crema on a fresh-pulled espresso.

  • Kind of a riff on an Irish coffee. Used a coffee liqueur I brought back from Italy which gives it a little more espresso flavor. — ★★★
