The dark, velvety flavor and texture of Mr. Black when paired with orange flavors, reminds me of dark chocolate and orange zest, which brings me back to Christmas mornings as a child. But here in Arizona, Christmas can be quite warm, so I wanted that nostalgia, but in a tropical, mai-tai inspired drink. This drink has all the decadent flavors and spice of the Holidays, balanced with tiki inspiration. This works if you're curled up in front of a fire, or relaxing on a hot, sandy beach somewhere.



 1 oz Aged Caribbean Rum(Doorly's 8 Year))
 ¾ oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 ¾ oz Grand Marnier
 1 tsp Allspice Dram
 1 oz Orange Juice
 ½ oz Lime Juice
 2 dashes Aromatic Bitters
 4 dashes Aztec Chocolate Bitters



Combine all ingredients in a shaker


Fill the shaker with ice and shake for 8 to 10 seconds


Strain into lowball or mai tai glass filled with pebble ice


Express an orange peel over the top and garnish with the twisted peel and grated nutmeg
