Approximation of the 2 Cents Cocktail from Mayahuel
From other users
  • Substituted liberally: Punt e Mes and Amaro Nardini for the Creme de Cacao (which adds a hint of mint). Good. The vanilla of the Carpano Antica and true chocolate might be better; not sure. — ☆☆☆
  • Both versions are good, but I prefer the second. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Really nice, boozy drink with complex notes. Used Ilegal Joven and Hiram Walker Creme de Cacao. Could be interesting to try w/ ancho chili infused vermouth or creme de cacao. — ☆☆☆☆

I have written the restaurant

I have written the restaurant in the hopes of getting an authentic recipe. I did make this with, uh, liberal substitutions -- Punt e Mes for the Carpano Antica and Amaro Nardini for Creme de Cacao. I enjoyed the cocktail, although I would reduce the Mezcal to keep the smoke in balance, and I can see that more chocolate would be good. Still, a complex and entertaining drink, even with my approximation.
