Sometimes you’re looking for a jolt of caffeine with your cocktail. Consider the coffee martini a two-for-one special. Jackie’s Sidebar bartender Nick Nazdin’s creation is made with mescal, Amaro averna liqueur and Becherovka liqueur, plus strong coffee. It arrives with a topper of whipped cream that’s been spiked with Ancho Chile Liqueur, making for a deeply flavorful pick-me-up.
