I always liked the idea of coffee flavor in a cocktail. I thought rum would be a good base to go with the coffee. I tried many different ingredients to add to the two base ingredients of rum and coffee liqueur before I finalized the ingredients. In the end I took a photo of the drink and sent it out to my kids, all adults, so they could see my new cocktail. We do this quite often. Anyway they asked the name of it and I said I wasn’t sure yet, my daughter actually came up with the name.

    Does it matter what kind of rum you use?

      I believe any good gold rum will do.
