ingredients

  • 1 oz cognac
  • .75 oz kirsch
  • .75 oz cherry heering
  • .5 oz simple syrup (one part sugar, one part water)
  • .5 to 1 oz egg white
  • 1 shot (about 1 oz) freshly brewed espresso

preparation

Add all the ingredients except the espresso to a shaker and shake (without ice) until frothy. Fill with ice and add the espresso. Shake well and strain into two small cocktail glasses.
