In Södra Sandby, a village in southern Sweden, Skånska Spritfabriken are producing a line of very interesting gins. And the newest addition is a coffee gin, meaning a gin with a sublime taste of coffee.
The possibilities to use this in cocktails are endless, but for our first attempt we created a dessert cocktail with chocolate and orgeat supporting the coffee gin.
Turns out the velvety orgeat kind of hugs the coffee gin, and a smooth and silky cocktail is created. Maybe make one of those instead of having a cup of coffee after the food?!
