The sombrero drink is a delicious, creamy and rich cocktail. It is a fancy looking layered drink, but still easy to make.
What is the sombrero drink?
A sombrero drink is a one to one ratio of Kahlua and Heavy Cream. This cocktail is super rich and creamy and has hints of chocolate and coffee to its taste.
Kahlua is a creamy coffee liqueur that is rich and thick. It also has notes of vanilla, caramel and chocolate in its taste profile.
The sombrero drink sort of resembles a hat in that you layer the heavy cream on top of the dark Kahlua.
This drink, like the brown cow and toasted almond shot, is creamy and rich which is perfect for chilly fall or winter nights. The richness works well as a dessert drink, particularly for winter holidays.
How to make this drink:
This is a layered drink, so while it does take a steady hand, it is still relatively easy to make. It only takes two ingredients and a few minutes to whip this one up.
- 2 oz Kahula
- 2 oz heavy cream
Start by gathering your jigger, bar spoon, glass, Kahlua, and heavy cream together.
Take your rocks glass and add some ice to it.
Use your jigger to measure out 2 oz of Kahlua. Pour that Kahlua into your rocks glass with the ice.
Use your jigger to measure out 2 oz of Heavy Cream.
To layer your heavy cream on top of the Kahlua: Take your bar spoon and turn it upside down. It should sit just above the Kahlua in the glass. Slowly pour your heavy cream from the jigger over the back of the bar spoon. This should make the heavy cream sit on top of the Kahula.
Your drink is ready. Sit back and enjoy!
