The "Seidín" by The Scottish Mixologist

Since trying it in Tenerife, a Barraquito is a favourite coffee cocktail in the Scottish Mixology arsenal. Traditionally with a base of condensed milk, licor 43 and a latte on top, it’s a beautiful layered creation that’s perfect after a long day at the beach. You know I love layers so it’s often used as a source of inspiration.

The name has a vague history with @atlasobscura attributing it to the local lore of a man nicknamed ‘Barraco’ ordering it at a Tenerife bar. That nickname translates to ‘shed’ in Portuguese and has somehow been marked in the history books as ‘barraquito’ which I believe means ‘little shed’. Putting an Irish spin on this, presenting the ‘seidín’.
