I recently found and fell in love with this liquor called Boomerang from Washington state. When thinking over coffee flavors, I knew I wanted to let the coffee shine in a simple cocktail, but elevated in a way that brings out some of the more complex notes in coffee. This nails it! With notes of cherry, apricot, orange, walnut, cinnamon, vanilla, and peppercorn - the Boomerang liquor brings the coffee alive with a bold rye backbone to hold it all together. Delicious!



 1 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 1 oz Rye Whiskey(Michter's Single Barrel)
 1 oz Boomerang liquor
 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
 3 drops 10% saline solution

    What is Boomerang Liqueur

      Boomerang is an amaro based liqueur I found that’s infused with dried cherry, apricot, walnut, orange, vanilla, cinnamon, peppercorn, and cayenne. It pairs really well with the coffee and brings out the more complex notes from Mr Black!

        I’m guessing it’s an Australian liqueur?

          Hey Steve! And actually funnily enough, it’s made in Washington state but I wanted the name to play homage to Australia. The name comes from a drink one bartender prepares and sends to a bartender at another bar via a trusted patron.

          It was actually created by Micah Melton, the beverage director at The Aviary. He designed it to be used in cocktails to add extra dimension to them by with an approachable complexity.

          It works wonderfully with the coffee flavor! I hope you give it a try and like it as much as I do!
