Alexander the Peacemaker

Israel Morales, Kachka | Portland, OR

This Russia-meets-Midwest cocktail from Portland’s Kachka blends vanilla ice cream with San Francisco’s unpasteurized Nash Kvass (a fermented and subtly alcoholic Eastern European beverage) and cocoa nib-infused overproof rum. The kvass’s savoriness balances the sweet cream and rum, while the cocoa powder and grated nutmeg garnish add a dessert-y element of complexity.


Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces rum, overproof and infused with cocoa-nibs

  • 1 ounce vanilla ice cream

Garnish: cocoa powder and freshly grated nutmeg
