What inspired you to create this cocktail? “Sasha Petraske’s La Dominicana cocktail was the inspiration for my cocktail. I think it’s the perfect nightcap because it is boozy, while also being rich and creamy.”
When would you serve this drink? “I definitely think this is an after-dinner or end of the night kind of drink.”
What music would you pair it with? “Jazz”.
What food would you pair it with? “Either a nice dark chocolate or a nutty gelato, like pistachio or pine nut.”
Name the person (dead or alive) you’d like to make this cocktail for. “My mother.”
