DONCELLITA or "Little Maid"

A great after-dinner drink

In Cuba, doncellita is slang for nipple, which explains the name of this milky coffee liqueur drink with its nipplelike maraschino cherry garnish.


2 tablespoons coffee liqueur (1 ounce), chilled
1 tablespoon evaporated milk (1/2 ounce), chilled or heavy whipping cream
1 maraschino cherry, for garnish

Pour the coffee liqueur into a clear shot glass. Very slowly add the evaporated milk in a thin stream to layer atop the coffee liqueur;

The drink should separate into 2 layers, with the milk on top. Gently add the cherry and serve right away.
