I love a Junglebird, so I sought out to create a version with Mr Black since it plays well with Campari… until I found that it had been done in the form of the Blackbird by Stephen Kurpinsky (great cocktail btw).
I decided to instead take the rum, Campari, and Mr Black combo and make a stirred night-cap drink. The name comes from the opening line in “Blackbird” by the Beatles. I brought in the Allspice Dram and falernum to really highlight the spicy tropical notes in the cocktail.



 1.50 oz Aged Rum (Bacardi 8 year)
 1 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 1 oz Campari
 ¼ oz Velvet Falernum (John D. Taylor’s)
 ¼ oz Allspice Dram (St. Elizabeth’s)



Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir until chilled and diluted.


Strain and pour into a double rocks glass with a large block of ice.


Garnish with a maraschino cherry (Luxardo)
