Dallas' new cocktail den darling Jettison does some great things. One of the best of those things is a coffee cocktail thanks to its sister shop next door, Houndstooth Coffee.

A favorite of their coffee options is the 'Spro Fizz, which brings together aged rum, espresso syrup and cream to make a cocktail that is perfectly sweet and is sure to give you a kick, both from the booze and the brew. Add an egg white and it may as well be an adult milkshake.

‘Spro Fizz
1.5 oz. aged rum (El Dorado 5-year)
0.5 oz. Gran Classico
0.75 oz. espresso syrup
1 oz. heavy cream
One (or 1 oz.) egg white
10 drops orange blossom water
1 dash lemon juice
1 dash Tiki Bitters
3-4 oz. soda

Combine all except soda water. Dry shake and shake with ice. Strain into a glass on top of soda water. Garnish with nutmeg and orange zest.
