Tobacco Road {a mezcal coffee liqueur cocktail}

Alright. I should apologize now because this is the second mezcal coffee liqueur cocktail I’ve shared this month. The first was the boozy chocolate milkshake and now it’s this Tobacco Road cocktail. But the two together are so good, I just can’t resist. Once you try them I think you’ll agree.

The base spirit in this cocktail is St. George Spirits NOLA coffee liqueur. It’s nothing like Kahlua, instead it’s complex with notes of vanilla, chicory root and coffee. I’ve had it neat, mixed with coffee, in a White Russian and in a milkshake. All have been fantastic. I’m not sure if it’s available to purchase everywhere, but I did find it online at K&L Wines. Go ahead and click that link to buy a bottle. I’ll wait.

So, to go along with the mezcal and coffee liqueur, I added in some Heering cherry liqueur. This helps sweeten the drink as well as provides some cherry notes. One dash of black walnut bitters finishes it all off. The result is a cocktail that reminds me of pipe smoke. Not nasty cigarette smoke, but smoke from tobaccos with names like Sutliff Great Outdoors, Drew Estates Toasted Black Cavendish and 4th Generation Stokkebye 1931 flake.
