The shaft drink is a sweet and creamy cocktail that is made with vodka, coffee liqueur, Irish cream liqueur, and espresso. It is believed that the shaft cocktail was invented in Calgary, Canada, by a bartender named Mark Smith. This cocktail is traditionally served in an old-fashioned glass, but we like to serve it in a coupe glass.
