Starfish and Coffee

3 oz
A carbonated soft drink in which quinine is dissolved, giving an intensly bitter flavor. Originally, tonic was used to fight malaria as the quinine was shown to be effective. However, modern tonic has much less quinine and is really only used for its bitter flavor; please take your malaria pills (and vaccinate your kids).
1 oz
A sub-set of dark, molasses-driven rums. These rums are very dark in color from added refined sugar (molasses), multiple distillation, and likely, but not always, aging in charred oak. There is no formal definition of black rum, if a recipe calls for this type of rum, it is usually refering to a very very darkly colored rum; a common example is Gosling's Black Seal. Pair it with lemon, lime, ginger and pineapple.
1 oz
'Point and a half' this Italian bittersweet vermouth (chinato vermouth) dates to around 1867 and is simultaneously amongst the bitterest and sweetest of vermouths. It can be used as a substitute for rosso (Italian red) vermouths in most cases, but can also be thought of as an intersting sub for dry vermouth.
1 oz
A brewed drink prepared from the grinds of roasted coffee plant seeds. Coffee is a fruit!
0.25 oz
A syrup made from the flavoring derived from orchids of the genus Vanilla. you can make it yourself by adding vanilla extract or fresh vanilla pods to simple syrup. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.

Pour the tonic into a double old-fashioned glass over 1 large ice cube. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice, then slowly strain over the ice to float the drink over the tonic. #whip #shake #ontherocks

“Right before service, I used to pop around the corner and grab an espresso and tonic from a great little coffee shop in the East Village, which led to the inspiration for this drink. Layering the drink not only looks great, but also creates different flavors throughout the life of the cocktail. I had this drink name, which is a Prince song, on my list for a while, but couldn’t match it with the right cocktail until this came along. -Tyson Buhler
