This cocktail started with me wondering what a combo of Mr. Black and Don’s mix would taste like but it quickly morphed into what essentially amounts to a coffee Zombie but with some heavy inspiration from the Mai Kai’s Black Magic. Despite the large list of ingredients, the build is pretty straightforward. The real key is to think of the Mr. Black as a base spirit because it doesn’t have as much sugar. I chose to swap it in for the Zombie’s gold PR rum and upped the 151 to bring back the ABV.
