I decided to make this after having a White Russian made with Mr Black. Tiramisu was the first thing that came to mind if I wanted to do a take on a creamy dessert cocktail. I used Mr Black for the coffee, Dead Man's Fingers spiced rum for the all-spice flavour and Pellegrino Marsala for the distinctive sweetness of the soaked biscuit. I experimented with chocolate flakes to finish, but felt that cocoa powder provided a more authentic experience.
Measure all liquids into a cocktail shaker and fill with ice.
Shake for around 12 seconds.
Double strain into a chilled coupe glass.
Dust top with cocoa powder using a fine strainer or tea strainer.
