Hot Shot Espresso

Despite our best efforts, the post-Thanksgiving dinner coma can put a real hindrance on Black Friday shopping. Counteract the tryptophan effect and kick start all that holiday gift buying with a caffeinated cocktail to get you through the night. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and cheers to good deals!


  • 1 oz. Coffee Liqueur
  • 1 oz. Baileys Original Irish Cream
  • Double shot of espresso
  • Steamed milk
  • Sprig of Mint for Garnish


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Combine all ingredients and shake vigorously. Strain into a coffee stein. Garnish with the mint sprig. Optional: Sprinkle with crushed peppermint pieces or add a dash of cinnamon.
