The Café Brasileiro is another very sweet, complex drink from the mind of John Gakuru (check out Aman Snow Leopard). It is sweet, a mix of cachaca, chocolate liqueur, and a special vanilla cream - all of that with fresh hot coffee.
I recommend making the best cup of coffee possible, your standard drip coffee pot may not do it here. I prefer to use a French press with slightly ground beans (fair trade, organic, dark roast) because it produces a frothier, richer cup of coffee that is excellent in this (and most other) hot cocktail.
- To make vanilla cream:
- Stir all other ingredients together in an Irish coffee glass.
- Slowly and gently layer the vanilla cream onto the surface of the drink.
