A classic Spanish cocktail popular in Mexico, the carajillo is made with espresso and Licor 43 and is the perfect afternoon or after-dinner cocktail that can be enjoyed hot or cold.


  • ½ cup brewed espresso or decaf espresso
  • 1 ½ to 2 ounces Licor 43
  • 8 ice cubes


  1. In an Old Fashioned glass, pour 1 ½ to 2 ounces of Licor 43 over ice.
  2. Slowly pour freshly brewed espresso over the top. To float the espresso for a layered look, pour gently over the back of a spoon and serve with a cocktail stirrer.
