Big Black BarrelToday’s cocktail is a big, dark tiki rum barrel riff. I find myself really enjoying the complexity that can be added to a tiki drink by using bitter and herbal flavors. Some of my favorite neo-tiki drinks are ones that utilize amari and other non-traditional elements. The interplay here between the molasses, the juices and the bitter element of the coffee liqueur and Fernet creates a bold, layered adventure.
Black, No CreamA Manhattan variation with bitterness from amaro, coffee notes from Mr. Black Cold Brew liqueur, and funkiness from dark Jamaican rum.
Black FerrariMy cocktail incorporates the Ferrari shot (equal parts Fernet Branca and Campari) as part of its base alongside Del Maguey Vida Mezcal. Rounding out the herbal bitterness of the amari and the smoke of the mezcal, Mr. Black sings in this drink as a perfect compliment to each ingredient throughout, with the Mole Bitters tying everything together. The oils from the grapefruit peel add a bright, yet subtle citrus note with each sip. I hope you enjoy. Thank you!
Up, Up! And Away!!!Light and refreshing take on espresso martini, perfect for the holiday season (or year round, your call)
Firm GripA slow-sipping digestif cocktail that brings together four strong personalities.
Agent CooperDamn fine coffee! The bittersweet taste of Mr. Black plays well with the vegetal flavors of the Green Chartreuse and the menthol kick of the Fernet-Branca to gives the cocktail a breeze of fresh air.
