La Dorita Liqueur Iced Espresso

This cool drink will be a show stopper at your next dinner party. It is the perfect after-dinner drink to sip; just make sure to use decaf espresso or your favorite coffee flavor. It’s also a great way to put a leftover pot of coffee to good use. Instead of pouring it down the drain, grab an empty ice cube tray and create your own DIY coffee ice cubes. As the coffee melts, it creates a luscious layered drink that is a feast for the eyes and palette. The drink will become sweeter as the coffee continues to mix with the liqueur. IMG_4677

7 shots freshly brewed espresso, or coffee roast of your choice

3.5 ounces La Dorita dulce de leche liqueur

Orange peel, for garnish

Honey tea lollipop spoons (optional)

Brew coffee (we prefer espresso because the bitter roast provides quite a contrast to the sweetness of the liqueur) and set aside to cool. Pour into a mini-cubette ice tray and freeze overnight. Place half of the tray of coffee cubes into a tumbler and pour La Dorita on top. Garnish with orange peel and a honey teaspoon, to further offset the bitterness of the espresso cubes.
