Review:

This tequila-laced coffee cocktail is relatively light in alcohol and perfect as an aperitivo or digestive.

As a longstanding trustee of the UK's drinks industry charity, which until recently was called The Benevolent, it was the name that drew this cocktail to my attention. The Benevolent was founded in 1986 to support colleagues in the drinks industry in need. Its name was changed to the Drinks Trust in March 2020 to better convey its purpose.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created by Justin Campbell for Mason restaurant in Santa Monica, USA.
