  1. Warren Bobrow says

    only two coffee beans? I would do this cocktail somewhat differently. Prepare some Turkish coffee. Set aside to cool. Add 1 Tsp. of the Turkish coffee the cocktail shaker then add the other ingredients. By using a strong coffee, the cocktail will taste like coffee, instead of really weak coffee.
