Sir Sankas' Coffie: A Gold Medal White Russian

In honor of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Doug Monroe of the Patterson House in Nashville mixes up a creamy dream.

Sir Sankas' Coffie

"With a name inspired by Cool Runnings’ Sanka Coffie, I built a winter cocktail that’s cozy and warm,” says Monroe.

“The clove and cinnamon notes from the bitters are big players in this cocktail and work really well with the almond-cookie flavors of the Amaretto, and the coffee and cocoa flavors of the Patrón XO Cafe. The vodka just drives home the warmth.”

1½ oz. vodka 
½ oz. amaretto
1 oz. heavy cream 
½ oz. Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa
2 dashes Angostura bitters

Pour vodka and amaretto over ice and stir. Combine remaining ingredients in shaker and shake with ice. Strain over the vodka and amaretto, stir, and top with another dash of bitters.
