Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this alcohol-free?

To make this cocktail into a mocktail, simply leave out the Leonista Reposado Black and top up with more espresso. 

I don’t have a cocktail shaker, now what?

There’s no need for a fancy cocktail shaker to enjoy this recipe. Use a mason jar with a lid or a plastic drink shaker.
