It’s game night over at one of your friend’s places and you’ve been promised a stormer of an evening. A few hours in and thing have been going great but it seems like the beer is catching up and the crowd is beginning to become sluggish. The lack of desire to participate in any further activities has begun to spread. You look over at your friend who, smartly and just like yourself, has supplemented their beer intake with the odd Bomani Vanilla. This has helped to keep you both quite perky. With a nod in the direction of the kitchen they get up and you follow them.
“What’re we going to do? It seems like everyone out there is falling off” they ask you. Luckily this friend keeps their liquor collection on the sideboard, not inside a cabinet.
“How many Bomani Vanilla have we got left?”
“Only like 4 or 5, not enough for everyone.”
You eye their liquor collection and see a few bottles you can use to help stretch that Bomani Vanilla out for everyones benefit.
“Grab a can and let’s make a few cocktail” you say sprightly.
A few minutes later you’re both carting out cocktails, in a variety of glasses and mugs, to help wake the falling soldiers. They all agree that the cocktails are excellent and half an hour later they’re all rocking and rolling with the games and the music again. The cocktails have done their job

Why This Cocktail Works
Notes of coffee and herbs arise from this cocktail. The drinker is met by flavors of coffee and vanilla, which are quickly followed by herbal notes from the tequila and just a pinch of smokiness from the mezcal. A medium bodied mouthfeel is left behind and the drinker is left with a slight nutty taste in the mouth.
