Yesterday we extolled the virtues of The Harbord Room’s artery-clogging burger; today we focus on a mom-worthy cocktail from the very same place. The Harbord Room is known for its inventive libations, and the drinks list is chock full of noteworthy concoctions.

The so-called Liquid Swords stands out from the pack ($16). The base is a house-made Mexican syrup made from an inventive blend of freshly ground coffee, three types of chilis (arbol, guajillo and ancho), cinnamon bark and nutmeg.

Paired with Fortuna mezcal and Tujador Yucatan honey liqueur, the drink is finished with frothed cream and a shake of chili de arbol dust, making for a drink that is both sweet and spicy — just like mom.
