When you walk through a breakfast buffet, the smells of freshly brewed coffee, pastries, and fruit waft over you. They meld into a delicious aroma that whets the appetite. Mr. Continental draws on these flavors of coffee and fruit preserves so you can enjoy breakfast during happy hour and into the evening. The recipe is based on the sour format to balance the deep notes of Mr. Black with tangy fruit notes.

Mix up a Mr. Continental for the rich and refreshing taste of breakfast. Cheers!



 1 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 ¾ oz Amaretto
 ¾ oz Cognac
 ¼ oz Simple Syrup
 1 tbsp Apricot Preserves
 ¾ oz Lemon Juice
 ½ oz Egg Whites



Combine all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker without the ice.


Dry shake the cocktail for about 15 seconds.


Add ice to the cocktail shaker, and shake it again for about 10 seconds or until the shaker is cold.


Using a hawthorn strainer and a fine mesh strainer, strain the cocktail into a coupe glass or a martini glass.


Optional: Add a pinch of fine ground coffee beans and a freshly peeled lemon swath on top of the cocktail for a garnish.

    I really just wanted to see if I could make a sour with fruit preserves and coffee, and I was quite satisfied with the result
