Breakfast Cocktail #2

You ever invent a cocktail and have literally no idea what to call it? That’s what happened with this one. It’s sort of like a mudslide, but with more caffeine, and the addition of chocolate and buttered popcorn notes. I’m calling it breakfast cocktail #2 since I would wager most people would consider a Bloody Mary the number one.

This cocktail is not only great with brunch if you are having a day out with friends, but it also makes a great dessert cocktail. The syrup and liqueur give it a sweetness, but with 100 ml of espresso there is no shortage of wake-me-up juice to get you going.

I also included a bit of popcorn syrup as I find it pairs really well with both coffee and chocolate notes. It was partially inspired by the Cinema Sour, but of course with a more breakfast orientated approach.

How To Make A Breakfast Cocktail #2

This recipe for a breakfast cocktail #2 uses a few different bottles, but mostly things that any good home bar will have. With the exception of the popcorn syrup of course. That is something you’ll have to pick up, but don’t worry, there are other cocktails made with popcorn syrup so it won’t go to waste.

Ingredients

50 ml Horilka – this is a Ukrainian grain spirit. If you cannot find it near you, you can use vodka.

20 ml Kahlua – or your preferred coffee liqueur

20 ml Creme de Cacao

20 ml Popcorn Syrup – I recommend the Monin brand as I genuinely think it is the best.

50 ml Heavy Cream – aka whipping cream

100 ml Espresso

How To Make: Add all of the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with a scoop of ice cubes and shake hard until the ice is completely melted. This will make the cocktail frothy and extra creamy. Pour it without straining into a glass (I used a traditional pilsner glass but I think it fits well with cocktails such as this one). Garnish with some caramel popcorn.
