Cocktail Hour: Batida de Cafe

Coffee Drink

A traditional Batida de Cafe is a cocktail of rum with coffee and egg white, but while the drink looked delicioso, I just couldn’t stomach the thought of a raw egg white in there. So, as the recipe I generally followed suggested, I substituted cream for the egg white and it was in fact delicious. And given that it’s holiday time at Trader Joe’s and I simply can’t pass up all of the yummy goodies they have this time of year, I garnished mine with dark chocolate covered ginger. I’d say this would be a big winner at any winter brunch.
