I wanted a creamy cocktail that wasn't like a latte so I went with cream of coconut. This inspired me to pair Mr Black with rum and after some comparisons I chose a cask strength pot still rum. Rather than include simple syrup I made a chai syrup with raw sugar to bring in some more complex flavours that would complement Mr Black. So the 4 C's are Coffee, Chai and Cream of Coconut.
