As the season creeps closer to winter, it’s not surprising if your tastes are turning from a cold beer to something with a little more warming power. If you’re looking for something a little different to chase away the shivers, consider a bit of Tuaca.
Tuaca isn’t really something new. The recipe dates back to the Italian Renaissance when the liqueur was created for Lorenzo de Medici. It starts with Italian brandy, aged from 3 to 10 years, blended with natural sugar and spirits, and flavored with citrus and vanilla essences. It’s delicious sipped chilled, and mixes well in shots and cocktails.
- 1 ½ oz. Tuaca
- 1 bar spoon organic chocolate syrup
Pour chocolate syrup into a shot glass followed by a layer of unchilled Tuaca. Toast and eat the marshmallow follow by a sip of the shot.
Tuaca is carried at many stores in Kansas City. Visit their website for a store locator or for additional cocktail ideas.
