Recipe: La Llorona Cocktail

The La Llorona cocktail is featured in Episode 15 “M-m-m-my Llorona”. This is the first cocktail I have ever made with the liquor Pisco, and honestly I love it. Its basically a milder tequila. This drink is packed with citrus (which we all know I love) and gets its spooky colors from black coconut cream and angostura bitters.

La Llorona Cocktail

Ingredients:
3 oz. Pisco
1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp. Granulated Sugar (the original recipe calls for 1 1/2 tbsp. but that was a bit too sweet for me)
1 tbsp. Coconut Cream
Black Food Dye (or color of your choice)
Dash of Angostura Bitters

Directions:
1. In a small bowl, combine coconut cream and a few drops of food dye. Stir to combine, and the add a small spoonful of the mixture to the bottom of a glass (if you are adding a sugar rim, do that before this step).
2. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine pisco, lemon and lime juices, and sugar. Cover and shake vigorously for at least 15 seconds.
3. Double strain the mixture into your chosen glass. Top with bitters. Enjoy!
