Black Sesame

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Created by Nico de Soto of New York City’s Mace Cocktail Bar, this creamy cocktail requires some serious prep, but we promise it’s worth the extra work. Made with bittersweet cacao nib-infused Cognac and tangy avocado purée, the full-bodied libation gets a double dose of its namesake ingredient. De Soto uses both sesame oil and a black sesame syrup to give the cocktail an extra rich, exotic flavor. Sweet and silky, it’s a perfect drink to sip after dinner or anytime your sweet tooth comes calling.
