Mint and coffee go so well together. I’ve come to realize coffee pairs really nicely with so many different flavors, including the anise and carroway from Aalborg’s Akvavit. Meeting with the mentholy Fernet Branca are eucalyptus bitters and anise syrup; these herbaceous notes mingle with the sweet coffee flavors of the amazing Mr. Black’s and Chameleons Dark and Handsome coffee, turning this into a bracing but delicious cocktail. The egg white adds some foam and the mint its iconic aromatics

    This sounds both complex and delicious…love the use of mint and eucalyptus with the anise and Fernet! What a flavor bomb!
