I was drinking alone at a dive bar in Maine when a women came up to the bar beside me and ordered a Sombrero. I hadn’t heard of such a thing, but it sounded vaguely racist. “What the fuck’s a Sombrero?” I asked.
We spend a lot of time bringing you recipes for swanky cocktails — drinks with egg whites, hard-to-pronounce liquors, and splashes of exotic liquors like absinthe — but sometimes there’s comfort in simplicity. The Sombrero is exactly that. It’s a smooth, sweet drink, and not too boozy, the kind that’s perfect for relaxing with at the end of a busy day. Think of it as a toned-down version of The Dude’s drink: a White Russian.
Here at BK, we like the Sombrero so much, we might never drink plain milk again.
– 2 oz. Kahlúa or coffee brandy
– milk or cream
Directions: Pour the Kahlúa or coffee brandy into an ice-filled old fashioned glass. Fill with milk or cream. Don’t bother stirring, because this drink is way to relaxed for that shit. (Plus, look how effing cool it looks as they mix.)
