This deliciously intense Moroccan coffee recipe was made especially for my New Years blog post by my father who is an amazing cook. The only thing that tops his cooking is his mixology skills. Although he’d never refer to himself as a mixologist, that’s really what he is. Every detail is thought through from the infused salt rim of the glass down to the specific brands he is using. When I asked him to create a special drink recipe for my blog, I just knew he would be so extra! 🙂 But his high level of standards is what makes him so good at what he does. You will need several types of liquor for this recipe (sorry, you can thank my dad for that) but hopefully you will have more of these bottles on-hand than I did since I am still in a temporary apartment while my house is being renovated. Wait… now that I think of it, that’s actually ironic. NOW is the time I SHOULD have this many bottles of liquor on hand because this home renovation is killing me!
I am very excited to share this recipe and look forward to sharing more of his cocktail recipes (and food recipes) on my blog in the future. In fact, I may just carve out a section of my blog exclusively for his recipes – he’s really that awesome! He runs circles around trained culinary chefs and everyone that has dined at his house tells him that he missed his calling. If it isn’t for the stress that owning a restaurant causes, this would’ve been my parents dream for sure.
