This decadent drink from Little Toad Creek is a tippling treat any time of day, but is especially delightful after dinner, while sitting in front of a roaring fire or under the big New Mexico sky.
1½ ounces Five Ducks Silver Agave spirit
¾ ounce Little Toad Creek Café Nocturno spiced coffee liqueur
1½ ounces chocolate syrup
3 drops mole bitters (optional)
1½ ounces half-and-half
Garnish: a pinch each of ground cinnamon, cocoa powder, and red chile powder, plus a mint sprig
1. Mix cinnamon, cocoa powder, and red chile powder together on a small plate. Moisten the rim of a martini glass with lime or water, dip it in the spicy mixture, and set aside.
