About this Cocktail

Original cocktail recipe from Please visit the website for the infusion recipes for below.

  • 1-1/2 oz. Intelligentsia El Diablo Dark Roast infused 15 year El Dorado Rum (see recipe online)
  • 1/4 oz. St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
  • 1/2 oz. Yalumba Antique Tawny Port
  • 1/2 oz. Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
  • Maple Glazed Pecan (see recipe online) dusted with edible gold glitter
  • Luxardo Cherry

Combine rum, allspice dram, port and sweet vermouth in a mixing glass 2/3 filled with ice. Stir about 20 seconds and strain into a chilled miniature snifter glass. Garnish with a cocktail pick speared with the pecan and cherry.

Rich and decadent are the two words that first popped out of my mouth. Full coffee wafts up on the nose and stays on the palate. A spicy, bittersweet finish pops with each layer of flavor. This is definitely an after-dinner sipper with a lot of complex allspice, ginger and chocolate notes to it. It pairs wonderfully with a vanilla ice cream. So, if you’re looking for something to pair with dessert this holiday season, here you go.
