INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

What type of tequila is best for a Silk Stocking cocktail?

Its unaged character ensures the rich flavors of the agave plant shine through, adding depth to the drink.

FAQ

Can the Silk Stocking cocktail be made in advance?

Due to its cream content and the delicate balance of flavors, it's best to prepare the Silk Stocking cocktail fresh. However, if you're planning for an event, you can premix the tequila, coffee liqueur, and grenadine in advance and store it chilled. Add the cream and shake the cocktail immediately before serving to ensure the best texture and taste.

NON_ALCOHOLIC_VARIATIONS

Is there a non-alcoholic version of the Silk Stocking cocktail?

Yes, a non-alcoholic version of the Silk Stocking can be made by substituting the tequila with a non-alcoholic spirit alternative that mimics the agave flavor profile.
