Get a piece of the tropics without leaving Seoul in late winter. This cold, refreshing Tiki-style cocktail on the bottom with a hot, white chocolate coconut cream foam on top gives this treat a bewildering texture and flavor. Falernum is a spiced liqueur made of rum, citrus zest, and various spices and is an essential component to many Tiki-style cocktails. The most interesting part of the cocktail is the hot foam on top: it’s something you would want to eat spoon after spoon of by itself. The cream dispenser (maybe iSi if you want to get fancy) is kept in a water bath of 70°F, ready to be served hot. “It’s Hot and It’s Cold,” and just like Katy Perry’s best selling single, this one’s a hit.
