Mexican Chocolate Alexander
Normally, you’d enjoy a cocktail before dinner and a dessert after dinner. But how about combining them together? Well, that’s what we did with the Mexican Chocolate Alexander. A dessert cocktail just hits different, it truly is the best of both worlds. An Alexander is a classic cocktail that consists of cognac, cocoa, liqueur, and cream. Instead of cognac, we tapped into our Rye Whiskey Finished with Black Cherry Wood. In addition to the cocoa liqueur, we also went with Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur to enhance that spice you get with the rye whiskey.
To create superior texture, we threw in a pasteurized raw egg white. This is optional but it does make a difference! Just be sure to shake your concoction twice, first with ice, next with no ice. This helps froth the egg white and aerate the cocktail. Enjoy!
