Dessert Cocktail: âme sœur

âme sœur

A decadent combo of Chartreuse, amaro, coffee, coconut and cream.

At Quaintrelle, bar manager Camille Cavan perfects the dessert cocktail with her âme sœur. In the drink, the herbal notes of Chartreuse merge with a Sicilian amaro and coffee, and it’s all topped with a decadent vanilla cream.


  • 1 1/4 oz. cold-brew coffee
  • 1 oz. green Chartreuse
  • 1 oz. coconut milk
  • 1 oz. coffee liqueur
  • 3/4 oz. Amaro dell’Etna
  • Heavy vanilla cream, to top
  • Tools:shaker, fine strainer
  • Glass:coupe
  • Garnish:edible flower (optional)


Add the first 5 ingredients to an ice-filled shaker and shake until chilled. Fine strain into a glass then top with heavy vanilla cream and, if using, garnish with a flower.

Heavy Vanilla Cream: In a cocktail shaker, add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, 1 oz. of vanilla bean paste, ½ cup of simple syrup (1:1) and shake vigorously until thick. Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days.
