A Great Mexican Cocktail

Carajillo is one of those really old recipes that originate from way back when Cuba was still part of Spain.

It was made with rum and the soldiers in the army fighting the independence war drank it to give them courage.

The Spanish for courage was Coraje that turned into Corajillo and then turned into Carajillo. You need a little bit of courage to drink this coffee cocktail.

Today we are sharing the Mexican Carajillo, this version is made with Licor 43. Carajillo can also be made with liqueurs like:

  • Brandy
  • Rum

How To Make Carajillo Coffee

To make this Carajillo cocktail you can take a tumbler glass. Fill half the glass with ice and let the glass go cold.

Take 50 ml of Licor 43 and either pour it on top of the ice cubes. Make a very strong cup of hot café solo.

Serve the glass of Licor 43 alongside the espresso and pour it into the tumbler glass. At first, you will see a separation between Licor 43 and the coffee.

Stir the café solo through the Licor 43. The coffee will go cold almost instantly. Enjoy this semi-sweet cocktail.

If you love sweet coffee first add some sugar to the café solo so it can resolve and then add it to the tumbler glass.
