  • hot coffee
  • Whipped cream

The sun is going down, It’s Nuitini time!

Madtini Nuitini
Tonight is the fifth anniversary of Toronto’s all-night contemporary Nuit Blanche. Art installations will take over the streets, buildings, parks and courtyards throughout the city for 12 hours from 7pm to 7am. The Madtini crew is layering up and getting ready for a night of fun (and a whole lot of walking).

To help us stay up night we’re going to need a lot of coffee, so why not create a cocktail using it. We mixed up a delicious combination of strong black coffee, amaretto, cream, chambord and simple syrup, topped off with a healthy tablespoon of whipped cream. We’ve dubbed it the Nuitini.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz Amaretto
  • 1 1/2 oz Cream
  • 3 oz strong dark coffee
  • 1/2 oz Chambord
  • 1 tbsp of simple syrup
  • whipped cream

Preparation
Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a splash healthy tablespoon of whipped cream.

Cheers and see you on the streets tonight.
