Lauren Mote is a Bartender at The Refinery in Vancouver. After Lauren challenged some of her industry friends to name an ingredient or two which would make a great cocktail that she could create using the 2 ingredients as a bases for the drink and then add other ingredients which would add mystery and flavour I succumbed to the challenge. I suggested that she use Espresso and Cocoa Nibs, she sourced the nibs and concocted her beverage naming it “The Bean”.
Homemade Coffee Liquor with JJ Bean and Continental Espresso Beans
Homemade Chocolate Vermouth with organic French cocoa nibs
Lauren suggests the Chocolate Hazelnut Creme Brulee from The Refinery as her dessert of choice to pair with this drink.
