Saturday Sips at Six with Dianne Buckley

Espresso LoCo Margatini 

Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday and you know what follows that magnificent meal – pie and coffee! So this year it’s time for you to kill two birds with one bean! Okay, maybe more than one bean, but you get the idea! Instead of just pie and coffee for dessert, you might as well have a little espresso to give you that much needed pick me up before all that Black Friday shopping! Recharge your pie and coffee with this Espresso LoCo Margatini Cocktail and your guests will certainly be asking for seconds!  The Espresso beans I love are from LoCo Beans in Downtown Leesburg – the aroma alone is enough to get you hooked and the rich flavor is the perfect complement to this not too sweet coffee cocktail. 

Of course, if you just want to sip and relax and you don’t want the extra energy boost – you can mix up a LoCo Margatini minus the Espresso – it’s equally elegant!

Espresso LoCo Margatini 

.75 oz. Patron XO Cafe Coffee Liqueur
.75 oz. Patron Silver Tequila
.50 oz. Patron Citronge Orange Liqueur
.75 oz. Espresso Shot 

Combine Patron XO Cafe, Patron Silver Tequila, Patron Citronge Orange Liqueur and Espresso in a mixing glass or shaker with ice – shake, strain and pour. Garnish with coffee beans and enjoy!
