For this drink I knew I wanted to get weird. I like being weird from time to time, so I looked up alternative uses of coffee and came across cascara, which is a tea brew from the outer skin or husk of the coffee fruit. So I decided to take more of a tea infused cocktail approach and made a lovely warming drink with accents of floral fruitiness.



 2 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 2 oz Aged rum(Ron Diplomatico Reserva Excusiva)
 15 g Fresh fine chopped ginger
 4 g Dried lavender
 1 tbsp Or 4g of cascara coffee fruit tea
 2 dashes Orange bitters
 4 oz Water
 ¼ oz Lime juice
 1 Whole orange peel



Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and carefully heat until just beginning to bubble


Gently simmer for 5 minutes, being sure not to let it get above a very gentle bubbly simmer. Stirring often.


Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes or until comfortably warm to drink.


Strain all the liquids into a vintage tea cup and enjoy a relaxing and warm drink.
