Dutch ColonialRecipe built from prized flavors of the maritime trading empire of the colonial Netherlands. This tiki-inflected drink is sweet and malty at first with black coffee and nutmeg right behind, then bright citrus follows before a roasted, spicy finish all mellowed by cool coconut. The cocktail features Genever (made in former colony New York), coffee and nutmeg of Indonesia, Curacao oranges, Malaysian coconut, Indian black pepper, Ghanaian chocolate and South American brown sugar. All these coveted goods and fortified colonies made the Netherlands the greatest power in Europe for a century by way of the Dutch East and West India Companies. Marvel at how the drink vaguely resembles the flag of the Netherlands! Contemplate the fleeting spoils of empire and the inevitable disintegration of global commercial and military power with the bitter-sweet burn of this bold dessert drink! Sail forth O conqueror!
Terry’s NegroniIf anyone has ever had a Terry's Dark Chocolate Orange, then you will understand the flavor profile I was shooting for. In my original specs I was trying to create a Negroni where I switched out the sweet vermouth for a blend of Amari and liqueurs. It was very sweet, but I was struck by how the coffee flavor of Mr. Black tasted almost like dark chocolate when mixed with the Bitter of Campari and CioCiaro.
Good Morning VietnamA cocktail riff on the delicious Vietnamese egg coffee
And The Beet Goes OnThis cocktail represents both my Ukrainian roots living in the United States and the Australians love of beets. Growing up eating homemade Borscht (a traditional beet soup), I knew beets were more than just a vegetable. I’m always searching for ways to incorporate it into my cocktails. Recently I discovered that in Australia, this root has a special place on the dining table. Instantly, this recipe was created. The robust coffee and spice notes of Mr. Black works perfectly with the earthiness and juiciness of the beets. Whereas the Aviation Western-style Gin brings cardamom and coriander notes into the mix. The lemon juice brightens up the beet juice and the pure maple coats it up with a rich flavor. And last, but not least, the egg white shines as a velvet frothy-like texture. Please enjoy, Cheers!

A Spiced Nod to NogA light version of egg nog, with spice notes from chai-infused gin and cardamom bitters, nuttiness from amontillado sherry and black walnut bitters, and a sweet roundness from Mr. Black and Demerara syrup.

The Start of Something BeautifulEarthy. Dark. Bitter. Inspired by a prog rock song of the same name, this late-night sipper, while apparently simple, balances beautifully the intense plummy, bittersweet fruit with smooth, rich coffee, dry artichoke and a touch of nutty maraschino. Fresh citrus adds brightness and elevates the aromatic experience.

Dirty ChaicapA dirty chai in nightcap form. Spices from the chai infused gin and amaro complement the Mr. Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur. All of the ingredients get a little boozy boost from VSOP cognac.
