When Sandshrews grow and evolve, their claws grow and become viable digging tools. They also get a pretty sweet tan on the spikes along their back. So to properly pay homage to Sandshrew's digging capabilities, we had to get a bit dirty ourselves. Well, not that dirty. A few coffee grounds got on our hands when we changed the filter, that's all.
To evolve your Sandshrew, add .75 oz (a pony) of coffee to the cocktail shaker before you shake, strain, and serve. Medium and dark roasts work best since their body and flavors play well with the aromas and flavors we already have here in the whiskey, yogurt, and curry powder.
To a cocktail shaker, add 1.5 oz whiskey, 1 heaping tbsp Greek yogurt, .75 oz medium or dark roast coffee, and 1 or 2 dashes of curry powder. Shake well and strain into a tall, thin glass.
