Minty Mr. Black Mocha

The Minty Mocha gets its deep coffee foundation purely from the Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur and has highlights of flavours from other ingredients, all blending beautifully with one another.

The Mint Mocha is very coffee forward on the nose, then boosted with chocolate and ends with minty freshness, further enhanced by the mint sprig for garnish. When smelling deeper, the delicious bourbon notes can be detected.

This cocktail beautifully lends itself to the special flavour profiles of the coffee beans used in Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur, sourced from Kenya, Papa New Guinea and Columbia. The most notable of these is the rich caramel and vanilla notes from the Columbian beans which pair well with the toasted oak and vanilla notes of the bourbon. The hint of bittersweet orange from the bourbon is also nicely paired with the floral and fruity notes of the coffee beans from Kenya and Papa New Guinea.

With this cream-based cocktail, the strong and warm bourbon is able to cut through the sweetness with ease whilst delivering warming vanilla notes. The chocolate liqueur adds a decadent chocolate experience which is very characteristic of mochas, further compounded by the coffee. Finally, the Crème de Menthe adds an unexpected brightness to the cocktail.

For those wanting a superior chocolatey experience, I would recommend the addition of two drops of chocolate bitters.

At the end of each sip, the cream allows the flavours to remain in the mouth for a second longer, further extending the tasting experience.
