How to make Feels Like June's Wake Me Up

Toffee, banana, coffee

This cocktail combines the rich flavours of coffee with the smoothness of whiskey. The amount of liqueur you use will affect the sweetness of the cocktail, so adjust to preference. Shaking the cocktail well will aerate the ingredients, creating a creamy texture. Use freshly brewed espresso, and good whisky.
