How to Make It
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker, fill to the top with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and enjoy. Then go to bed.
Why We Like It
This week’s drink, the Tonight Cap, was inspired by all three — caffeine, booze, and milk — and calls for coffee liqueur, whiskey, and half and half. The science behind it may be way off, but the flavors are spot on. The Tonight Cap is like a whiskey-based White Russian, but not as sweet. If you want to be really festive, you can use Jim(my) Beam, or even Irish Whiskey (Fallon is of Irish descent), but let’s be honest: right before bed, just about any whiskey will work.
