Signature VMV Cocktail
Specially concocted just for VMV by New York mixologist Javier Rey, our Wake Me Up Before You “Coco” cocktail is a little “naugh-tea” and a lot of nice. I like mine with rum instead of vodka but either way, it’s like a hot toddy and eggnog got together and absconded to a tropical island for a spicy holiday :).
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- Sweetened cinnamon tea
- Coconut cream
- Unflavored premium vodka (Javier used Medea)
- Orange bitters
- Cinnamon sticks
Brew the tea with fresh cinnamon sticks and let cool (to save time, brew earlier and refrigerate).
Throw ice and 2-3 dashes of orange bitters into a glass.
Pour in equal parts tea and coconut cream. Add 2 ounces (about a jigger and a half) of vodka. Stir.
Finish with some orange zest and a pinch of cinnamon powder as garnish.
