The Abuelita, Spanish for ‘grandmother,’ is a creamy tequila- based cocktail given a touch of warmth with the addition of ground cinnamon and cinnamon-flavored liqueur


  • 1 ounce tequila
  • 1 barspoon white crème de cacao
  • 1 dash cinnamon-flavored liqueur
  • ground cinnamon to garnish


  1. Place a dash of cinnamon-flavored liqueur into a coupe glass, and then tilt the glass so the liqueur evenly coats the inside.
  2. Put the tequila and crème de cacao into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  3. Vigorously shake the mixture for 30 seconds and then strain into the prepared cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish the drink with a dusting of ground cinnamon and then serve immediately.
