Corretto Coffee Liqueur

MADE BY ROUNDHOUSE SPIRITS IN BOULDER, COLORADO

MOUTH SAYS...

Maybe you can relate to this after-dinner dilemma. The one where you want a hit of espresso to wake you up just enough to avoid slipping into a food coma, but also something strong and smooth to draw your evening out just a little bit longer?

Our solution: Corretto Coffee Liqueur, which tastes like a rich, flavorful cup of coffee with notes of vanilla and a bit of molasses tang. It's sweet, but not overly so, with enough complexity to pair with dessert. (A brownie sundae with Spoonable caramel, perhaps?)

The liqueur is made by steeping organic and fair trade coffee beans and whole vanilla bean in neutral spirits, then adding just enough cane sugar to balance out the bitterness. Roundhouse Spirits got their inspiration from cafe corretto, an Italian espresso "corrected" with a shot of liqueur. The beans hail from their favorite cafe, The Unseen Bean, in Boulder, Colorado.

Abide by "The Dude" (you're a Lebowski, we're a Lebowski) and make yourself the best White Russian ever. Combine 1 oz Corretto and 1 oz vodka in a rocks glass (plus 2 oz Grady's Cold Brew Coffee if you need a little more buzz). Fill with ice and top off with cream.
