Carajillo Cocktail With Espresso And Licor 43

Carajillo, the renowned drink of Mexico City, is a delightful blend of freshly brewed espresso and the exquisite Spanish liqueur known as Licor 43. This irresistible concoction can be savored in renowned venues such as cantinas, coffee shops, and cocktail bars throughout the city. The choice of Licor 43 in this exquisite beverage can be attributed to its delicately spiced richness, complementing the coffee with its notes of luscious vanilla. The term carajillo, derived from the Spanish word for courage, coraje, pays homage to the origins of this drink. It is believed to have been crafted by Spanish troops stationed in Cuba during its time as a Spanish colony, who ingeniously combined coffee with rum to embolden themselves.
