Servings 2 people


  • Shaker
  • Strainer
  • Short glass


  • 45 ml Brandy
  • 20 ml Coffee Liqueur
  • 30 ml Espresso
  • 4 Ice cubes
  • 50 ml Whipped cream
  • 40 gm Chocolate biscuit crumbs


  • Vanilla extract


  • Add the brandy, coffee liqueur, espresso, ice cubes and vanilla into a shaker. Shake briefly.
  • Pour through a strainer and into a short glass and gently pour the whipping cream over a spoon into the glass. This will help it stay separate layers.
  • Garnish with chocolate biscuit crumbs and a tiny shovel.
  • Serve immediately.


  • Don’t over shake the contents in the shaker as we are not trying create a foam.
  • Pouring the whipped cream over a spoon helps the layers stay distinctive.
  • However if your whipped cream is whipped to stiff peaks you won’t have to do this. My cream was very loose and barely whipped.
