Maker's 46™ Latte

Thanks to Maker's Mark for submitting this delicious holiday coffee cocktail to get us in the mood! 

Maker's 46™ Latte
by Gary Anza, Chef, Bistro 33


    1 part Maker’s 46™ Bourbon
    2 tablespoons fresh finely ground espresso
    4 parts spring water
    3 parts + 1 ounce organic whole milk
    1/2 cup ice cubes
    1/2 part vanilla vodka
    1 rock candy swizzle stick
    Fresh ground nutmeg

Prepare espresso in stove-top espresso maker. Bring 3 parts milk in a small saucepan or Turkish coffee pot to boil. Mix espresso and milk in coffee mug. Add Maker's 46™ Bourbon. Pour vanilla vodka foam* over espresso milk mixture. Add swizzle stick and pinch of nutmeg. Stir and enjoy.

*Vanilla vodka foam

Add vanilla vodka and 1 part milk to small shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until frothy.

Extra Notes:

Chef Gary recommends this as an after-dinner indulgence or brunch accompaniment. The vanilla vodka pairs well with the natural vanilla notes in the Maker’s 46™ Bourbon, and the rich espresso flavor is a perfect match for its smoky undertones.
