Book a date with this dark, strong and sweet mix of a drink.

This is one smooth, motha - shut ‘cho mouth! According to Him + Her’s resident mixologist Fatimah Taliah whips up the perfect smooth mix for those late nights…


Brandy (1/2 oz)

Irish cream (1/2 oz)

Coconut puree

Cinnamon stick

Cinnamon powder

Chocolate syrup


Before you begin, pour 2 counts chocolate syrup into your balloon cognac glass. Slowly rotate your glass 360 degrees, making sure the syrup coats the inner walls. In an ice-filled cocktail mixer, pour ½ oz brandy, ½ oz Irish cream (for depth and color), and a splash of coconut puree. Shake thoroughly until fully chilled. Pour mix (with ice*) into chocolate coated glass. Garnish with a stick of cinnamon, and 1-2 shakes of cinnamon powder as a final touch. Smooth, baby.

*This mix can be served over ice or blended.
