Caffeine Club

The Caffeine Club is inspired by two things I couldn't live without: caffeine and a banana and peanut butter sandwich. Whether it's for breakfast, lunch, or a simple midnight snack, the sweet and salty flavour of peanut butter on fresh rye bread with soft fragrant bananas pairs perfectly with the rich Mr Blacks coffee liqueur and the smokey lapsang tea syrup. I prefer this drink as a digestif as it has rich, sweet and umami notes throughout with a soft mouth feel. The Islay spray inside the glass highlights the smokey and salty aspect of the drink and reminds me of my evening walks along the stormy beaches in Scotland and the joy of coming back home to a late night sandwich with a hot cup of coffee.
